BBCC-JANUARY 2019 WORKSHOP Expanding Visions (6:30 PM EST)
Workshop for Monday, January 28, 2019 Boynton Beach Camera Club presents Chuck Pine’s Expanding Visions 2019: À La Mode The theme running through this year’s Expanding Visions class is À La Mode. But, this does not refer to apple pie with ice cream. It refers to various camera modes—the ones you probably don’t use, nor even know they exist. This class is a bit different from your ”usual” photography classes. It will make you think. It will make you look at your images, and photography in general, in a whole new way. In short, it will ”expand your vision.” To whet your appetite, here are the titles of the three assignments: Expose Yourself; Drive By Shooting; and Meter Me in St. Louis. Please join us on Monday evening, January 28th. You’ll be glad you did!
