LANDIS ó Whether youíve always wanted to take better vacation pictures or figure out how your new camera works, Landis may just be the place.
The town is hosting a photography workshop later this month, but the deadline for registration is approaching.
The workshop, which will be taught by members of the Capital City Camera Club of Raleigh, is March 26 from 8:30 to noon in council chambers. The deadline to register is March 18.
The cost to participate is $20, which covers the cost of a CD for photos and a framed print. Those interested can register on the townís website, www.townoflandis.com, or pick up a registration form at Town Hall, 312 S. Main St.
ěItís for all levels ó a beginner and intermediate,î said Debbie Goodman, the townís deputy clerk.
The town hosted its first workshop last spring.
ěWe wanted to have it in another location and with different lighting. We hope to have one in the fall, too,î Goodman said.
Some of the pictures taken at the last workshop have been on display at town hall since that time. The photos taken at this workshop will also go on display.
This class will have an instructional meeting first and then participants will move on to Memorial Gardens in Concord.
Goodman said the first class was supposed to be for children, but since so many adults wanted to participate, the instructors continued with adults.
Mike Acquesta, town engineer and a member of the Capital City Camera Club, said they are ěa bunch of guys and gals who enjoy photography as a hobby, and some are semi-professional.î
One aspect of the photography clubís charter is to provide outreach and community service. ěI have clients all around the state, including Landis, and I thought why not see if they would like us to come out and do a workshop,î Acquesta said.
Club members are not paid.
ěWe do it because we like doing it,î he said.
Members have planned workshops in other towns in the coming months.
Acquesta said participants can use digital or film cameras, but those with film will have to have their own pictures developed. The club will download digital images to a CD for participants.
He would prefer those interested provide their own cameras, but if they donít have one, club members will have a few on hand.
This workshop will feature macro, or close-up, photography.
ěWe will start with the basic information then progress to close-up photography,î Acquesta said.
The workshop is open to anyone.
