Photo University - "Lens Compression"
Join us for PhotoU and our monthly Digital Photographic Competition. This month, we will be holding PhotoU and image competition on our regularly scheduled meeting date. We will have some fun with lens compression. You will learn about what lens compression is and how to use it in your photos. Have you ever heard someone say that a long lens or telephoto lens "compresses" the background? What does this exactly mean? You will learn what it is, and what is isn't.
We will have several stations set up at Olympia Hills to demonstrate and let you go hands on to see for yourself. You may bring your camera and variety of lenses from 50mm to 200mm to play with. So, join us for a fun and educational PhotoU and take away knowledge on lens compression.
And... don't forget to enter your image for our monthly photo competition! Entries are due on Tuesday, October 15th, by 5:00 P.M. You must be present to win!
Photo University or "PhotoU" is an ongoing member benefit of the Professional Photographers of San Antonio to further our mission of professional education. Events, unless otherwise stated will be no charge to attend.
