YOU Can Make Better Photos

We won’t go out in kayaks, but we WILL venture onto the (wild?) streets of Ruston!

A photography workshop with Bette J. Kauffman

Saturday, May 20, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Ruston Artisans, 203 W. Alabama Ave., Ruston, La.
Call 318-254-3322

9 – 11:30 a.m.:

  • Framing – the first, most radical act of photography
  • Focus – telling the viewer what is important
  • Exposure – working with the light
  • Assignment – looking at the universe in a new way

11:30 – 1 p.m.:

  • Shooting – on your own or with others (+lunch…)

1 – 3 p.m.:

  • Editing/Critique – How can this photo be improved?

Bring a camera, any camera. A smart phone will be fine. In fact, a smart phone makes the business of sharing your best from our time shooting over lunch with the instructor, who will project them for the critique.

And don’t be afraid of critique. It’s your best friend! It’s not about criticism. It’s about what worked and what didn’t and how to make it better.

If you are using a 35mm camera, also bring whatever technology you need to upload & email photos, if possible. That might include a laptop computer if that’s what you need to email to the instructor for sharing.

I, your instructor, am a photographer and founding member of the Ruston Artisans Co-op. My photographs regularly appear in juried shows around the U.S. and online. If you want to see some of my work, there’s a bunch on display in the back room at Ruston Artisans. You can also go to my website blog:
