apa_washington_dc

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.

Please complete this survey by midnight EST January 21, 2017

Beyond the Fundamentals: Composition and The Digital Darkroom

November 15th, 2016 Comments off

APA_Logo

 

The class will revolve around taking your photography to the next level. How do you become a “better” photographer? What kinds of gear will help your imagery? Students will also learn how composition affects the viewer. In addition, there will be a hands on section that each student will give you the opportunity to use their camera.

The second part of the class will focus on The Digital Darkroom. What are the differences between jpg and raw files? What are the benefits of shooting raw files? And how do we process raw files. Adobe Elements will be briefly talked about as well as Adobe Lightroom.
In addition we will look at two tools for when we take quick shots with our phone; that is Snapseed and The Photographer’s Ephemeris

MAGIC HOUR|HAPPY HOUR SCHEDULED FOR WED, NOV. 13 HAS BEEN CANCELED.

Due to an odd confluence of scheduling conflicts, nobody from the  APA board will be able to make the happy hour tonight.  If you show up and can’t find anyone from APA, please belly up to the bar, by a drink, and make a new friend, safe in the knowledge that chapter chair Matthew Rakola will buy you a drink sometime in the near future.
