Event Description:

Well-known photographer David Lee Myers will share his extensive experience through two intensive workshops at CCC in August. Throughout forty years of teaching college photography, instructor David Lee Myers has enjoyed helping people find their own voices to explore the joys and challenges of life.  In his decade at Clatsop Community College, he introduced a fully digital curriculum.  Myers has lived and photographed in the Columbia-Pacific since 1970.  His work may be seen at

Outdoor Camerawork will be offered as an intensive four-day workshop that will be highly productive for attendees.  Each day participants will go out and photograph a series, in a variety of locations so everybody’s interests can be met.  The workshop focuses on finding worthwhile scenes, composition and framing, and working with light. Most hours will be in the field with cameras, exploring getting the most effective images.  In the evenings participants will review results and discuss how to do even better.  Sprinkled in will be demonstrations of how the camera controls work and how to use them for effective expression, starting with the basics and progressing to most capabilities of modern cameras.  If the weather is interesting, one aspect of photographing is to work with what’s happening—and there are always wonderful possibilities.

Digital cameras will be most convenient for the evening reviews, but film cameras may be used, with an understanding that the college does not have developing facilities.  The workshop uses the Graphics Lab classroom with Photoshop on iMacs.  Participants may use those, though the teaching of Photoshop waits until the Digital Processing and Printing course the following week.
