A studio photography workshop will be held at the Mill Spring Agricultural Center April 2 and 3. Filled with tips and instruction on how to get the best results out of your camera and equipment, this comprehensive two-day workshop will lead you through the basic skills that are necessary for excellence in “studio photography.”

Along the way you will be taught, in simple terms, the rules about advanced camera settings and operation; framing and composition, lighting, backdrops and props; planning and production and a final section that puts all the elements together, plus offers advanced techniques to achieve superb results.

All workshops are offered by Natural Light Photography and will be held in a classroom setting at the Mill Spring Ag Center on April 2 and 3.

Instructor Oliver Yu has been creating images for over 20 years. His unique photographic expression has been fanned by his passion to continuously learn and explore the art. He finished his BA in commercial photography from Brook’s Institute of Photographic Art Science in Santa Barbara, Calif. There he had the opportunity to meet and learn from such great photographers as Ansel Adams, Yousuf Karsh and Jerry Gay. Prerequisites for the class include an intermediate knowledge of digital SLR photography.
