Organizing, preserving and (most importantly) enjoying your family photo collection

Photo Organizing Workshop

Life in Focus - Organizing, preserving and (most importantly) enjoying your family photo collection

Last year it was estimated that over one trillion photos were taken. How many photos will you have in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years? And what about video?

We all want to avoid dealing with our big photo mess, but that can put us at risk to lose it all.

This workshop is designed to help you get started. We will go over some photo organizing basics, talk about available resources and provide some simple steps to help you begin managing and preserving your digital photos, prints and film.

Night Photography with Peter Bennett

When the sun sets and the street lights slowly start to glow, a whole world of light, shadow, color and mystery awakens. When others pack up their gear and go home, the more adventurous know this a time to explore, to seek images that are not so evident, not so visible, but there to be captured and made into beautiful and dramatic photographs.

Critical to successful night shooting is training the eye to see in an environment it is not used to photographing in, and learning what conditions will make for a successful photo and what will not. Utilizing tools and techniques such as long time exposures, balancing ambient light with artificial light sources, working with low and high ISOs and bracketing will be covered as well as post production techniques to bring your images to their full potential.

Basic Photography at Los Angeles Center of Photography with Peter Bennett

In this beginning six-week workshop, students will learn all the controls and functions on their digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras, basic camera operation (including f-stop, shutter speed and ISO), fundamental concepts of photography, and how to control the photograph’s final look. Discussions include composition and light, how to get the background in or out of focus, how to stop or blur motion, why to use one ISO over another, when to use a tripod, and how to use the camera’s light meter to provide the best exposure.

Other topics covered include using the appropriate lens for a desired effect (the difference between a prime lens and a zoom lens), how to hold the focus on a subject if changing camera positions (exploring auto focus modes and manual focus), and how to properly hold the camera.
