BRAHM to offer photography class
March is photography month at the Blowing Rock Art and History
In addition to presenting its current main gallery exhibit, “The Carolina Mountains: Photography of Margaret Morley,” the museum will also offer a photography class.
Professional photographer Lonnie Webster will lead a three-day photography class that takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, March 4, 6 and 8.
The class will focus on landscape and nature photography.
“Early March is a great time of year to do a landscape photography class,” Webster said. “We will have a few spring flowers blooming, the sky is usually blue with puffy white clouds with long distant views. Often in the summer, the sky becomes hazy with limited long distant views. We could also have snow scenes to photograph.”
The cost of the three-day class is $150 for BRAHM members and $165 for non-members. No photography experience is necessary, but all class members must bring their own digital cameras.
Webster said the class will first make sure everyone understands basic photography terms, like shutter speed, ISO and f/stop, and how they affect each other and the end results of the photograph.
“The class will try to cover workflow from camera to computer to print or Internet,” Webster said. “Participants will be encouraged to photograph local landscape between classes and, we will do some during class as a group.”
