NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY & more
With Chip Forelli in Cape May
Chip Forelli will share his shooting techniques and discuss how to think about shooting for a new portfolio on location. The evening sessions will include night photography, technical discussions, and presentations of both Nancy Ori's and Chip Forelli's portfolios.
We are going to spend a lot of time talking about your images, talking about creating a cohesive body of work as a personal project, how do you approach that and think about it while you are shooting and editing your work, what will the final project look like: an exhibit, a self published book or a box of images; and what printing techniques might be necessary to give them a cohesive look.
There will be discussions about selecting the right paper or canvas, where to get the materials, finishing techniques, how to prepare for an exhibit, how to deal with galleries, the business side of fine art photography, and how to think about a book project and prepare your files for a self published portfolio book.

Artificial Light PhotographyWorkshop
with Nancy Ori in Cape May
Learn how to shoot flash outdoors and have a lot of fun playing with all kinds of light sources that you might find around the house, hardware store or in your camera bag. Let's learn how to use the stuff you already own! The list will include: pop up flash, shoe-mounted flash units, hot lights, studio strobes, flashlights, book lights, lamp light, LED lights, and any other light source that uses electricity or a battery that you want to bring along.
The goal of the workshop is to explore lighting as a form of creative expression and think outside the box so you have confidence in any situation you might find yourself.
We will also try out a whole host of accessories to shape the light. Some of these will be home made and really cheap versions of expensive items on the market and others will be the expensive ones so you can see if there is really a difference. Bottom line, we will be photographing indoors and out during the day and evening. All levels are welcome.
