Join recognized photographer and author Robyn Scott, for her two-part workshop, “The Art of a Good Photograph” and “Portrait of a Place: Capturing the Magic of a Place.”

The morning session shares information on moving beyond taking snapshots to creating artistic images. Participants will see photographs from around the world that “work” and will discover why they work, including the elements and guidelines that create good visual impact. The emphasis will be on how to think about photography rather than how to manipulate the camera.

“Portrait of a Place,” that afternoon, presents ideas for taking photographs that help capture a place. The focus will be on images that help tell an individual’s ‘travel story.’ To tell the story, from overview to details, photos require elements that define the place, whether a backyard or some exotic location. A checklist of 75 things (food, transportation and architecture, for example) will be given to help photographers change their perspective on what to consider and encourage participants to see beyond the obvious as they take photos of a place.

Tuition for this one-day workshop is $60 for CTAC members and $95 for non-members. To register, or for more information, visit www.crookedtree.org.
