Using Photos to Tell Your Story: The Nuts & Bolts of Photography

It’s said a photo is worth a 1,000 words. What is your photo saying? You’ll learn the nuts & bolts of photography: composition, rule of thirds, and much more. Whether you have a point-and-shoot or a high-end digital camera, these simple skills will help you create more engaging photographs with any subject matter.

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?

Submit up to three photos when you register and we will select a few to see “what are they saying.” Photos may be mailed with registration or submitted through online registration form.
Also bring your camera, as we will be practicing our newly acquired skills and sharing our work.

Charley Starnes Leading this discovery will be Charley Starnes, Photo Salon Superintendent for the Iowa State Fair and Director of Living History Farms Annual Photography Day. Charley’s photographs have been featured in the Iowa Travel Guide and the cover of the Silos & Smokestacks’ Visitor’s Guide.
