WilderImages to hold photowalk workshop at Mattatuck Museum Arts & History Center

Photographer Ken Wilder and artist Lois Wilder, of Wilderimages located in Southbury, CT, will hold an on-location digital photography workshop Saturday April 24th starting at the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury at 9:00 a.m. and continuing onto the green outside the museum in the afternoon.

The morning session will concentrate on the focus and exposure features of each person's digital camera and how to photograph inside museums using local historic artifacts on display at the Mattatuck. Participants will learn how to use their digital cameras in low light situations, how to isolate a subject and tell a story with their images, as well as minimize reflections in a museum setting.

The afternoon session will begin with a review of the Mattatuck's current Frederick Stone Exhibit of turn-of-the-century photographs and postcards followed by an outdoor photowalk around Waterbury Green and portions of the "main street" business district photographing some of the same structures featured in the exhibit but a century or more later. Many are still there, some have a new face and some have been replaced by something new.
