RMSP Weekend Intensive

March 1st, 2017 No comments

RMSP

Join us in Leesburg, March 25 – 26, 2017, and you will learn more than you ever thought possible … in just two days!

 

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.

Enter the 11th Annual Exposed DC Photo Contest!

January 4th, 2017 Comments off

exposeddc

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.

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
