Creativity is Key Workshop: Charlotte, North Carolina

Join Us for our Creativity is Key Workshop




Creativity is Key Workshop – Charlotte Area

Instructors:  Mary Presson Roberts ( and Lorraine Shannon (

What:  Creativity is Key Workshop will be a one and a half day workshop to explore using originality to create compelling images. Instructors, Mary and Lorraine, will share ways to create captivating, artistic images using camera techniques and post processing. They will also share strategies for finding interesting subjects for unique photographs, as well as instruction on composition.

The workshop will combine classroom presentations and work in the field. Two separate locations have been secured for shooting. One location will enable participants to focus on photographing primarily nature. The second location will have a non-nature focus.

Prerequisites:  Participants should have an understanding of how their camera works and how to determine a proper exposure using manual mode, aperture priority mode, or shutter priority mode. This will not be a workshop about how to use your camera technically, but rather how to use your camera to capture scenes and objects creatively.
