Workshop - Just Me and My Camera


The event was held on Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

                                                            "Just  Me And My Camera”   A Photographer Workshop

                                   “There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.” – Ansel Adams

The concept for this workshop is that we all see things differently even if we are looking at the same exact thing. This workshop will be an interactive collaboration that hopefully will inspire your photographic creativity.

We will meet at the Oakbourne Mansion, 1014 South Concord Rd. West Chester, PA 19382 at 9:30 am. to 10:45                

Each attendee will be able to photograph anything they want on the grounds.  We leave the park at 10:45.  We will proceed to the Choir room at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 10 W. Pleasant Grove Rd.West Chester, PA 19382 at 11am to 12:30pm   Each attendee will share one unedited image directly from your camera with the group. The photographer will explain what inspired them to take that photo and why they selected that image to display. What did they see before they clicked the shutter? How did your mind’s eye see lines, textures, patterns or colors? Is there something you saw that triggered an emotion?                

  The group will discuss the image, the photographer's artistic vision and impacted use. The idea is to explore and reveal the photographer's and the viewer's perspective.  The emphasis is on what a photographer sees and captures and not on post processing issues.

Each attendee should bring a camera, a thumb drive and a bucket full of creativity. Please, contact Wayne at to let him know that you will be attending.

                                    "Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field. "- Peter Adams



Westminster Presbyterian Church

Driving to and from Westminster Presbyterian Church. Care must be taken when driving to and from the church, since it is adjacent to US 202 (on the southbound side) and this is a busy road with lots of fast-moving traffic. Traveling to the church from West Chester and the northern side. Drive south on High Street or US 202 Southbound. After passing Stetson Middle School on the right, be aware that West Pleasant Grove Road is the very next right-hand turn after the jug handle at the Stetson light (about 500 yards down). Slow down as you come to this turn, then make a right and then a left into the church parking lot. Traveling to the church from the south side. Option 1: You can come north on US and turn left into West Pleasant Grove Road but there is no light there and it’s a dangerous turn and not recommended. Option 2: Come north on US 202 and make a left onto Route 926, Street Road. Drive on 926 for 0.9 miles, make a right on South New Street, drive 0.6 miles, make a right on West Pleasant Grove Road, drive 0.8 miles and make a right into the church parking lot. Parking and entering the church. The church is a large facility and there are many entrances. We need to enter via the main entrance, which is a large feature of the church with a stone portico. You can’t miss it. Park anywhere near there; there are plenty of spaces. Please do not park in any restricted spaces. Leaving the church. To travel south, you can leave the church lot and travel south on US 202. Merge carefully! To travel north, note that you can NOT make a left onto US 202 northbound. You must do one of the following. Option 1: Travel South on US 202 to Route 926, then make a left and use the shopping center parking lot to change directions to the northbound road. Option 2: Leave the parking lot by turning left on West Pleasant Grove Road, then make a right on South New Street. New Street will take you north through the WCU campus and into West Chester. (Make a right on Rosedale to get back to High Street.)
