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.

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
