March 12th, 2013 – Photography Fundamentals – Capture Basics with Scott Musson @ NVPS

On March 12th I’ll be doing a educational session on basic photography. This presentation will focus on photography fundamentals, particularly on capture basics.

I’ll discuss basic equipment choices and basic capture techniques. This will include a discussion of available camera types, lenses and accessories. I’ll also discuss the basics of image exposure including aperture, shutter speed and the mysterious ISO.

While this presentation is geared toward novice’s photographers, it will also help reinforce the basics and suggestion good techniques for those who already know their way around the camera.

Hope you’ll join me for Capture Basics

March 19th, 2012 – Reston Photographic Society – An Introduction to Black Light Photography

On Monday March 12th, Scott Musson will share his extensive experience with Black Light photography.  The evening will start with a lecture describing the technique and the tools, followed by an opportunity to try some black light photography yourself..

The lecture will demonstrate several techniques that Scott has used to create award winning photographs using Black Lights and ordinary items like a Slinky.  Black Lights make fluorescent colors “glow” and create an unusual effect that forces you to look at things in a whole new way.

Black Light photography is low-light photography so remember to bring a tripod in addition to your camera.  Faster ISOs are not efficient for reducing the shutter speeds with Black Light photography so camera support is critical.

Items to bring if you would like to try black light photography

  • Camera (with charged battery and memory card)
  • Macro or Close Focusing Lens
  • Tripod

Other useful items:

  • Cable release
  • Diopters or extension tubes
  • Imagination

We look forward to a fun and educational evening that we hope will inspire you to try this unique lighting technique on your own.
