Staff Reports, Hartselle Enquirer
David Haynes, owner of The Studio at Blount Springs, will offer four one-day workshops this summer through the Office of Continuing and Community Education at Wallace State. The classes are for people of all skill levels and will take students to area waterfalls, the Sipsey Wilderness, Birmingham's Botanical Gardens, and the Blount County covered bridge. Students will need to bring a digital camera and any other equipment they wish to use for each excursion.
On Saturday, June 5, students will travel to Mardis Mill Falls and Guntersville State Park. At each location, students will learn techniques for photographing waterfalls as well as general landscape photography tips. At the end of the session, students will be able to make prints of their digital images on a portable digital printer.
The next session is Saturday, June 19, and will feature a trip to the Sipsey Wilderness in northwest Alabama. Students will walk on easy trails to photograph the unique landscape of this area. During a picnic lunch, students will download images taken during the morning for review and discussion by the class. The workshop will finish mid-afternoon and each student will receive a digital print of his or her favorite image taken this day.
The Birmingham Botanical Gardens is the next stop on Saturday, July 10. Students will learn techniques for close-up photography with digital cameras. During the lunch break, students can download images for review and critique from the class. The workshop continues after lunch and each student will receive a digital print of an image taken that day.
The last workshop will take place on Saturday, July 24, at the Swann Covered Bridge in Blount County.
At this location, students will explore techniques for photographing people in an outdoor environment.
Haynes will demonstrate various portrait lighting and posing techniques using models, natural landscape features, and man-made backdrops. Students will review and critique their images during lunch and will receive a digital print upon completion of the workshop.
Instructor David Haynes has worked as a professional photographer for 25 years. He is the recipient of over 40 newspaper photography awards and has been published in numerous publications. Recent projects include "Alabama 2000, The Millennium Project" and photographs for a book on Cumberland Island, Ga. Haynes was also awarded an artist fellowship by the Alabama State Council on the Arts for 2001-2002.
