    Silos & Smokestacks Hosts Using Photos to Tell Your Story Workshop

    Northeast Iowa – Silos & Smokestacks National Heritage Area (SSNHA) will be hosting a workshop, “Using Photography to Tell Your Story,” on Wednesday, October 1, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. CST at the Farm House Bed & Breakfast Gathering Room, Fredericksburg, IA. The workshop will be led by Charley Starnes, Photo Salon Superintendent for the Iowa State Fair and Director of Living History Farms Annual Photography Day. Charley has had photographs featured in the Iowa Tourism Guide and SSNHA 2009-2010 Visitor’s Guide.

    In a fast paced society, we have to be mindful of how we are capturing our audience’s attention. Are the pictures on your website, on your brochure, in your exhibit, conveying the message you want for your site? In this workshop we will learn the difference between a photograph and a snapshot, the nuts & bolts of photography: composition, rule of thirds and much more.

    “We are excited to have Charley Starnes for this hands-on, informative workshop. Through his expertise participants will learn how to capture intriguing photos,” commented Don Short, SSNHA President.

    Cost to participate in this workshop is $35/person affiliated with a SSNHA Partner or Emerging Site. All other participants, $45/person. Group discounts are available for SSNHA Partner Sites. Deadline to register is Wednesday, September 24. For more information or to register for this workshop, click here or call 319-234-4567.
