Hail Strobists,

I'm giving a workshop through Newspace Center for Photography. Here's the info, below. Hope you can come!

On this photo field trip, you'll spend the weekend exploring the macabre side of Portland with photographer Susan Bein. The trip will begin Friday night with a special-access, after-hours shoot at Oak's Amusement Park. With Susan's inspiring guidance, you'll learn all about her blur and light painting techniques as you roam the park with your camera.

On Saturday, you'll head out to Sauvie Island to photograph the historic Bybee Howell house. It's the perfect location for ghostly images à la macabre photographer extraordinaire, Ralph Eugene Meatyard. The trip wouldn't be complete without a dash of Halloween flair - trip leader Susan Bein will have masks and costumes on hand - perfect fodder for some truly unusual images. Participants are also highly encouraged to bring costumes and props to play with in the field.

Susan's unique perspective and sense of fun will really make this a special trip for those looking to break of of the mold and get creative with their photography. Class will meet in the Newspace digital lab on November 14th for a Photoshop demo and hands-on practice session with images taken during the shoots. You'll learn how to add textures and layer effects like glows and blurs to your images to add drama and suspense.

Friday, October 30th 5:30pm-10pm (Meet at Oak's Park)
Saturday, October 31st 10am-4pm (Meet at Newspace & carpool out to Sauvie Island)
Review & Photoshop session at Newspace: Saturday, 11/14 10am-1pm
