Photography Basics

Joshua Rainey with camera under oak treeCanceled. Ages 13+. Learn to use your camera in a way that lets you control all settings to get better pictures. Professional photographer Joshua Rainey will teach basic photography techniques with an emphasis on how to use the photography gear you already own. This course will include basic technique, photographic rules, composition, camera settings, and one-on-one time to help you improve your skills as a photographer. We’ll be meeting at various Willamalane parks, so feel free to bring your families along to play while we learn photography. No childcare provided.

Joshua Rainey’s Top 3 Quick Tips to Becoming a Better Photographer

  1. Hold your camera correctly.  I often see photographers (even some professionals) holding their cameras completely wrong and it drives me crazy!  Hold the grip side with your right hand so your index finger rests on the shutter button and make sure your left hand is under the lens, not over.  If you put your left hand under the lens it helps support the camera and avoids camera shake, which can make photos blurry.  This is a very easy thing to learn from the beginning, so do it right and never look back!
  2. Try new things.  Put your camera on a tripod, use a long shutter speed, use large apertures, use small apertures, photograph something at night, photograph something in bright sunlight.  Seriously, it doesn’t matter what you do, just mix it up and get out of your comfort zone, you might even learn something new doing this.
  3. Carry your camera with you.  Especially as you’re starting out.  Take your camera everywhere, photograph boring things, try to make something simple look amazing.  The more time you have with your camera in hand, the easier photography will be for you.

These are all very simple quick tips that anybody out there can do to improve their photography!  If you want to actually learn how to control your camera and make the decisions yourself, then come take my class and you’ll leave knowing exactly how to make the decisions for your camera, helping you create better photos for a lifetime.  The class focuses on teaching you the basics of exposure and gives you enough knowledge to be able to setup exposure settings in manual using ISO, shutter speed and aperture.  Each plays a vital role to creating a great photograph and if you can make the decisions instead of letting your camera do it for you, your photos will vastly improve!  I teach you on the gear you already own so that you can practice on it and become a better photographer without having to purchase more gear.

Summer Paddle Trips

paddlers on coyote creekAges 13+. You choose — lake, creek or river. The level of adventure is up to you! We have partnered with the great folks at Northwest Canoe Tour to offer a few different kayak opportunities this summer. All are appropriate for beginners and include instruction, gear, guide and transportation. Bring a sack lunch and beverages. Space on each trip is limited; please register in advance. Participants under 18 will need a guardian to sign a liability waiver.

Cougar Reservoir: Paddle the clear waters of this reservoir in the mountains above the McKenzie River.

Coyote Creek:  A short distance from the launch on Fern Ridge lies a hidden gem! Wind through reeds and trees, past beaver dams and discover the beauty of this gentle stream.

Fall Creek Reservoir: Explore the fingers and perimeter of this local lake surrounded by towering Douglas Firs.

Siltcoos River: Experience this meandering stream from Siltcoos Lake nearly all the way to the Pacific! One portage required. Please note the longer day.

From the Trip Organizer

Kerry Jack, outdoor recreation supervisor, has led these paddle trips before — and “they’re a blast,” she says. “The trips are low-key enough to be perfect for beginners, and scenic enough to thrill someone with more experience. The best part is connecting with a place in nature, surrounded by grasses, trees, birds and water. You slow down and breathe more deeply,” she says.

“Working with Ryan at Northwest Canoe Tour has been wonderful. Participants can choose in advance whether they want to paddle in a solo or tandem canoe or kayak, and he provides all the safety information and instruction for whichever craft you choose. ”

Want a little paddle practice before you embark on a trip? Try Paddle in the Pool!

Pickleball

Pick up a paddle and try a new sport! Pickleball is a game played on a badminton court with the net lowered to 34 inches at the center. It is played with a perforated plastic baseball (similar to a whiffle ball) and wood or composite paddles. It is easy for beginners to learn, but can develop into a quick, fast-paced, competitive game.

Participation is free with membership. Otherwise, drop-in fees apply. Become a member!
