    MPPA is announcing yet another fantastic educational opportunity that is sure to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing! In this hands on program, you'll join just a handful of other photographers in a studio environment to learn the "ins and outs" of Light Painting. Ross Magnuson, M. Photo., owner of Treasure State Photography and past MPPA President, will share his techniques of this creative process!

    Attendees are encouraged to bring their camera, tripod, flashlights, laptops and an interesting object to photograph. Truly a great learning opportunity from one of our own!

    In this class you will learn how to light paint various subjects using different techniques. You will learn how I process these images using Lightroom and Photoshop. I will also go over some of the techniques I use to display my photography.

    Learn to better understand Image Competition from the Judge’s side of the equation—learn how scoring works, how to apply the 12 Elements in critiquing an image, learn judging etiquette and how to verbally critique an image in this half-day judge refresher class. You’ll learn how to evaluate your own images (as well as others’ images) using the PPA Image Competition standards. You’ll also learn what is new in 2019 and better understand the IPCC rules changes for the upcoming competition season. If you have your Masters of Photography degree or are close to receiving it, this class is for you.  This class will be a staring point for MPPA Members that are interested in entering MPPA's new Juror Development Program.
