The Sanborn County Extension Office will be offering a special photography workshop on Monday, April 17, at the 4-H Building in Forestburg called “Photography 101 with Abby Bischoff”.
Bischoff is a Beadle County 4-H Alumni who has made a career out of her passion for photography.
In the first session at 9:30-11:30 a.m., Bischoff will be sharing the basic rules of photography, when to follow and when to break them.  This is an excellent session for the beginner level photographer who is beginning to learn how to take pictures.
For the more advanced photographers, there will be a second session at 12:30-2:30 p.m.  Bischoff will go more into depth on some of the techniques she uses every day.  Topics that will be covered throughout the two sessions include:  rule of thirds, lighting, leading lines, backgrounds, composition, framing, cropping and depth of field.
Getting to know your camera will be important before you arrive.  Everyone’s camera is different, so go over the user’s manual if you have just purchased a new camera or even to re-familiarize yourself if it’s been awhile.
This free workshop is open to all 4-H and non 4-H youth and adults.  If interested, please RSVP to sanborn.county@sdstate.edu or call (605)796-4380.
