Catawba County Library Press Release
NEWTON, N.C. – The Catawba County Library will host Clayton Joe Young, CVCC photographic technology director, for a hands-on workshop to help people improve their skills in capturing landscapes and other elements of nature. It takes place at 4 p.m. on Thursday, April 25 at the Main Library in Newton.
Young, who recently contributed to the coffee table book Newton: Then & Now, will demonstrate how to make the most of smartphone and DSLR cameras and provide useful ways to ensure that your photography skills can produce what you envision.
He’ll cover the essentials – composing a shot, factoring in light conditions, dealing with distance and motion – and will teach participants how to avoid common pitfalls.
After the instructional part of the seminar, students will head outside to put the theory into practice. By working in the field, they’ll understand how to make technical and artistic decisions on the fly, respond to favorable or unfavorable conditions, and think smartly and quickly so as not to miss a great shot.
To register, please call 828.465.8665. Participants are reminded to bring along the digital camera they’re most comfortable using.
As a reminder, the Library is also accepting submissions for its My Catawba County photo contest through 5p.m. on April 30. Check the Arts @ the Library page at www.catawbacountync.gov/library for guidelines.
