This Weekend Intensive is designed to strip away all the fluff, and get down to what actually matters when you enroll in a photo course: Becoming a better photographer!
To ensure that you return home on Sunday with skills you can begin to use immediately, your Weekend Intensive learning experience will teach you how to achieve perfect exposure in a variety of situations, how to read and understand your histogram, how to create effective compositions, which lenses are right for different subjects, how to use negative space when composing an image … just to name a few!
Here’s how it works:
After an all-group introduction session on Saturday morning, you decide which track is right for you – Basic or Intermediate – for the first small group session of the weekend. Based on your level of experience and current knowledge base, you will either learn the building blocks of photography or more advanced concepts.
From there, the large group reunites with both instructors to expand upon the morning session with two afternoon sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday morning, covering topics that are applicable to all photographers regardless of skill level.
Breaking into small groups once again, session 5 on Sunday morning allows you to delve deeper into a genre of photography that interests you the most: People or Landscape photography. To cap things off, the group critique session ties together all the topics learned throughout the weekend by giving you the opportunity to see and hear what two professional photographers have to say about one of your images, and offer suggestions on how you might improve.

American Photographic Artists Advocacy Call to Action
Survey about Internet Infringement
Why another survey?
Because the Copyright Office is asking questions and we have an incredible opportunity to provide valuable information about issues facing professional photographers.
This survey is being conducted by the Copyright Alliance.
APA is a member so if you are an APA member, you are part of the Copyright Alliance as well.
From the Copyright Alliance:
Over the last year, the Copyright Office has been conducting a study of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). (The DMCA is a section of the copyright law that shields internet providers and websites from liability if they take down infringing material from their sites when notified by copyright holders).
The Copyright Alliance has been actively participating in this study to make sure that individual creators like yourself have a voice.
Last year, APA created a survey to find out what creators’ experiences have been like using the DMCA.
The Copyright Office has request additional information, so we have created a second survey and we are again asking for your help in completing it.
Please complete the Copyright Alliance survey no later than February 17, 2017.
It should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
We need your help to better understand how the DMCA works (and doesn’t) for the creative community and to let the government know so they can keep what works and fix what doesn’t.
Please help us advocate for you by completing the survey.
Join APA this Sunday, Feb. 12th from 11am-5pm for an in-depth exploration of the many different looks you can accomplish with just one strobe head.
Please bring any equipment you would like to experiment with. This event is intended to go beyond the demo though, onsite demonstrations will kick off the event.
HOIST is a boutique studio in Fairfax VA that caters to creative professionals who appreciate high production capability and great value.

The Copyright Office is conducting a review of copyright registration requirements.
They are considering limiting the number of images that can be registered at one time.
We are looking to gather information from professional photographers regarding the number of images you typically would shoot and potentially need to register.
By answering this survey, we will help preserve your needs in the copyright registration process.
We will then provide the Copyright Office with our findings.
Exposed DC’s 2017 photo contest is open for entries! This March will be the 11th annual Exposed DC Photography Show, a celebration of living in the Washington, D.C. area. Do you want to see your images of the art, music, food, sports, culture, nostalgia, people and places of this incredible town we live in? The District is too often reduced to a tourist destination or a political mud-pit – but those who live, work, and love here can rise above. The Exposed DC exhibit shows the city only as you know it.
This contest is geared towards photographers who don’t usually exhibit their work, but it is open to all – send in your terrific iPhone shot, or your sharp Leica photo. If you simply love taking pictures, this is your contest. You can submit your work until January 11, 2017, so if you don’t think you have the perfect shot just yet, you have plenty of time to go out and get it! Need inspiration? Check out the winners from our 10th anniversary exhibit
Rules and guidelines for entering the contest and participating in our exhibit are covered in the submission page. Subscribe to our newsletter for all our contest and exhibit updates. If you’d like to volunteer for our team, please drop us a line.
