Photography Workshop Concludes with Grace

May 18, 2018

Olivet University Riverside held an intensive photography workshop that came to a graceful conclusion on Saturday, April 28, with a closing event. Students traveled in from all over the United States to participate.

Participants shared a moment of fellowship to congratulate each other for training hard to develop skills that can be used personally and as part of their Christian service. Through the Lord's guidance, attendees developed not only their faith, but practical photography skills that can find many uses in the future.

In the first week, the workshop covered basic theory regarding camera exposure and composition. After each lesson, participants went outside to the campus to immediately practice what was taught. In one session, students had the opportunity to photograph alpacas at an OU-owned ranch.

The second week was filled with demos that reflected different equipment setups for portraiture, product, and night photography. Though night photography was particularly challenging, students were able to capture scenes that were otherwise hidden by darkness.

After experiencing two weeks of grace, participants will return to their respective homes to practice their newly acquired skills. They will also hopefully share knowledge with colleagues to spread photography best practices.

Through the effort and training of students, we hope to identify future photographers whose skill may be used for God. In doing so, many beautiful stories and memories will be saved for generations to come.

    Thanksgiving Break (office closed)A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. (Psalm 100, KJV)
