DSC_0101 jayHands On Photography Workshop with Jay Fleming

Want to improve your photography skills with advice and instruction from a pro? The Queen Anne’s County Centre for the Arts will host a workshop conducted by professional photographer, Jay Fleming. The workshop will focus on perfecting fine art photography techniques using proper lighting to move you beyond the digital point and shoot aspect of your digital camera. Join Jay as he introduces you to the magic world of photography and helps you build a solid foundation in the fundamentals. Bring your DSLR or point and shoot camera as the class heads outside to capture outdoor shots utilizing your newly found skills! Students are encouraged to bring their own photos with them for analysis and critique.

Jay Fleming’s photography showcases his twin passions of the outdoors and photography. Whether it’s an egret taking flight or a rainbow trout gently cutting the surface of the water, the love of his craft is obvious in every photograph. His iconic photographs featuring Maryland’s Eastern Shore can be found in almost every article or publication pertaining to our seafood industry. Jay comes from a family of passionate photographers. His father, Kevin Fleming, is a former National Geographic photographer who has circled the globe to capture timeless images. “Instead of reading me children’s books, my parents showed me photography books,” he remembered. Using one of his father’s hand-me-down rigs, a manual focus Nikon and old 300mm lens from his National Geographic days, Jay accompanied his dad to a rookery island in Delaware. His picture of a great egret won grand prize in a national EPA Wildlife of Wetlands photography competition. That award-winning photo, snapped at the age of 14, remains one of his most memorable photographs.

The workshop will be held June 6th from 12:00 – 7:00 p.m. Bring your own SLR or point and shoot camera. Classroom instruction will be followed by an outdoor photography session. Open to ages 12 and up. Call the QAC Arts Council to register 410-758-2520 by May 30th. For further information and a full listing of classes visit us at www.queenannescountyarts.com.
