- Workshop: How to Identify, Expand and Refine Your Photography Skills
We all field questions regarding how to do something with photography, says Fort Worth Camera Club president John Nixon.
John, a Master* photographer, and many other club members are regularly asked about camera brands, lenses, software and for tips about making prints and digital images.
“We all try to answer those questions as best we can,” says John. “In most cases there is really no one correct answer; we all have our own personal style based on choices we have made and processes we have adopted over the years.”
To help sort through options, John will conduct a workshop geared toward steering individuals toward sources of information. Workshop participants will be able to:
- Research and identify photography learning opportunities
- Identify possible resources to realize a personal vision and style
- Make a plan to acquire skills and achieve personal goals
After you’ve found resources for learning, plan to attend the Feb. 6 first Thursday meeting. Darren Huski, aka Wilderness Photographer, will discuss image processing and software programs.
Our programs are open to anyone interested in photography. We hope you’ll also join the club, attend our activities and enter competition. Learn more about membership.
*Master photographers are those who have enetered competition and accrued points to advance in skill levels. Find a slide show of award winners in Beginning, Advanced and Master categories.

- Photoshop Layers Explained, Sharon Sturgis and David Bee
Learn about the Photoshop Layers function and how to use it to enhance your images at a second Layers workshop led by club members David Bee and Sharon Sturgis.
“We will do the PS Layers class again. This will cover the basic uses for layers, blending layers, using adjustment layers and other useful tips. Please know the Photoshop Basics or this will not make sense to you. If we have time, we will practice at the end of the class. Two hours can only cover the basics, but we hope to get you started on a fun world of new technique.”
Participants should bring a laptop with Photoshop software installed and operating to follow the discussion and to practice using layers.
David and Sharon regularly win awards in club competition. David is Workshop coordinator; Sharon is an instructor at Tarrant Community College District.

- All About Studio Lighting, Roy Richardson
Studio lighting can take many forms, including table top sets, floor sets using one light to six lights, or more. Many subjects can be photographed using one light.
This workshop will focus on techniques for using one light, which is a very creative way to photograph. Roy will use video and photographs to demonstrate indoor and table top lighting.
The topics and techniques that will be discussed to control light are:
- Equal lighting
- Light angles and reflections
- Camera angle
- Light modification

Did you miss David’s presentation? He has shared explanations and suggestions for you here: PDF Macro Photography David Bee Aug.10 2019 (2.1MB with images.)
Macrophotography involves making images of flowers, insects, household objects … almost anything with detailed texture, parts or structures not normally visible or easily viewed.
Everyone with a camera can explore the small world, says David Bee. And regardless of the weather outside, you can photograph close-up macro images with just a few inexpensive items.
David will demonstrate a macrophotography set up and explain how to plan and capture images of tiny things, like his lovely flower photo above.
Workshop topics include:
Join us indoors during the hottest part of the summer and learn about making macro images.
