TODAY’S HOURS: 8 am – 6 pm 

Photographing with Natural Light

Registration for this workshop is closed.

This workshop is an introduction to manipulating natural light – using reflectors or diffusers, controlling shutter speed, ISO, or aperture to capture action or create powerful depth of field based on available light. Whether you are looking to improve your flower photos or portraits in nature, understanding how to use your camera’s exposure quality in natural light will dramatically improve your photographs.

Instructor: Tuba Öztekin Köymen is an artist, educator, and designer who lives and works in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. She was born in Turkey and graduated in 1995 from the Department of Graphic Design at Bilkent University. In 1999, she was awarded an MFA in Photography and Digital imaging by the Maryland Institute College of Art. Köymen’s art calls attention to human nature by offering candid scenes of everyday life through the media of photography, mixed media, and photo based installations. Working across the gamut of photographic processes — from alternative to digital — Köymen centers on issues arising from place, culture, and social interaction.
