Education & Training
Sep 9th, 2008 - Workshops Education & Training: Presentation Skills & Novice Night - Sept. 30

September will start a new program year of workshops. Monthly workshops will be held on the second Tuesday of the month at the Dunn Loring Fire Station. They start at 7:30 PM. Special workshops will be held two fifth Tuesdays:  September (Novice Night) and , provisionally, March (Portfolio Critique). Workshops are organized to promote hands-on opportunities to learn about photography skills, techniques, and equipment. Two workshop-field trip combinations will support Competition themes: (January-Rhythm, and April-Architecture). The workshop provides "how-to" lessons which is followed by a field trip to provide in-the-field practice and instruction. This is followed by Competition judging to provide feedback on success. Again this year we will sponsor a Portfolio Project. (Please see xxxx.)

September 9, Presentation Skills: Six ribbon winners from last year  will lead a workshop on preparing prints and digital images for competition and display. Following a break, several smaller break-out sessions will provide members an opportunity to get questions answered and share tips.

Finally, we are working to establish a "Help Desk--Problem Solvers" program to connect members with questions to members with answers. We plan both specific person to person referrals and online Q & A's. More details will be forth coming about this next month.
