Photo Workshops

MAPS offers free workshops in an effort to expand our members’ educational opportunities.  These workshops are presented by MAPS members who are generously donating their time and expertise.  All MAPS members in good standing can sign up for any of these workshops.

  • To make a suggestion on how we can improve this effort, please click here.
  • You don’t need to be an expert to present at a workshop, just have a willingness to share some knowledge.  If you are interested in doing so, please contact Bob Duke.

We make various handouts/notes from the workshops available to all MAPS members.  Please click here.

Flash & LED Shot Building

During our April and May workshops, Tim Rex guided us on the use of off-camera flash photography.  For many of us this was ground breaking.

In our June workshop, Mike Lake will demonstrate using Flash and LED lighting to enhance our photographs.

Most of us use existing ambient light when we photograph nature.  But we can further refine our results when we use and control the lighting during the photographing process, instead of trying to do the same thing in Lightroom or Photoshop.

Mike will demonstrate step by step how to setup the lighting needed to enhance the subject prior to capturing that final image.  This will include discussing many of the tools and techniques that Mike has learned during his professional career in still photography, video and audio.

When:  Tuesday, June 19th, 6:30-9:00 pm
Where:  Classroom B, Thornhill
