IN-PERSON OUTDOOR WORKSHOP
Downtown Rockville, CT is a fascinating blend of history and modernity in a continually changing landscape: 18th century architecture, old mills contrasting with new thriving businesses, the beautifully landscaped Central Park, and Paper Mill Pond next to the newly built Gene Pitney Park flowing into the Hockanum River.
For photographers, this area of Downtown Rockville offers captivating textures and subjects, no matter your area of specialty or interest. Great also for artists of other mediums looking for reference material!
Instructor Peter Glass will work with the participants as they explore and photograph, suggesting shot locations, setup information, lighting possibilities, and camera angles. He will also review their images as they shoot, offering feedback and advice, as well as providing help to those needing assistance operating their cameras. However, it is important that each student is fairly comfortable using their own camera.
Bring additional lenses if you own them, as well as extra camera batteries and an extra camera card. Be sure the batteries are well charged! We will be doing a bit of walking, so dress for that and the weather.
Please arrive at least a few minutes early. Parking is available in the former Ladd & Hall parking lot, off East Main St.
