Free photography show, workshop in Alva planned for July 27-28

April 24, 2012 

Anyone interested in digital photography is in for a treat July 27-28, when the Northwestern Creativity Project plays host to its fifth “Picture My Weekend” event – a free photography show and workshop at the Runnymede Hotel in downtown Alva.

“Picture My Weekend” is provided to help participants at all digital photography skill levels and for varying types of digital cameras. The workshop is planned to be informal for comfortable learning. Registration is required and will open at a later date.

Anyone looking to improve their photography skills, or share their knowledge with others, is urged to attend this event. Several sessions will be available to photographers who use a standard point and shoot camera or digital SLR. Some session topics include Composition, Portraits, Landscape/Nature, Epic Photo Failures, Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Photography and Using Flashes.

The annual photography show and reception will be Friday, July 27, from 7 to 9 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend to see the photographs of those who have signed up for the workshops. Refreshments and live entertainment will be provided.

In addition to Friday night’s Photography show, workshops will be available for those who have registered for “Picture My Weekend.” These workshops will be held upstairs in the Runnymede Hotel and will begin at 8 p.m.

Saturday’s workshop begins with check in at 8 a.m., followed by a welcome at 8:30 a.m. The first of a number of roundtable sessions provided to help photographers at all skill levels begins at 9 a.m.

As is tradition, participants will be asked to complete a photography assignment during the workshop with the results culminating in a slide show at the end of the day. An opportunity to complete that assignment has been built in to the session time periods.
