TUPPER LAKE - The Wild Center will host a Fall Photography Workshop with Carl Heilman Saturday, Oct. 2.
Carl Heilman, II has photographed the Adirondacks for over 35 years; working to meld his passion for wildness into his landscape and panoramic photography. His work has been published in numerous national and regional publications.
Join Heilman for this day-long workshop that includes a morning session from 9:30 a.m. to noon, a public showing of "Wild Adirondacks" during the lunchbreak, and an afternoon session from 2-7 p.m.
The morning will begin with an introduction that includes visuals and camera technique information plus some time for Q & A. The afternoon will start in the theater with a general public showing of Wild Adirondacks which features Carl's photography. This is followed by time in the field, working with various photography techniques and equipment. Field photography will focus on lighting and composition, including working with wide angle, macro, telephoto, and panoramic nature photography techniques. While the photo techniques will apply to both digital and film photography, working with a digital SLR camera will offer the opportunity for image critiques during the photo shoots as well as offering more shooting options.
Heilman enjoys working with all levels of photographers. However, being familiar with the photo equipment and understanding basic camera techniques will allow a person to absorb more of the photography techniques.
The cost for the workshop is $125 for Wild Center members or $138 for non-members. Guests can purchase tickets online at www.thewildcenter.org or call 359-7800.
