The Hoffman Center for the Arts in Manzanita will host a one-day photography class Saturday, May 14 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost will be $60 per person.
“Translate Your Vision Into Compelling Photographs” will be led by Randy L. Rasmussen, a former photographer and picture editor who worked for The Oregonian from 1981 through 2015.
“There are many ways to make more interesting pictures, starting from when you push the button to how you crop and present your images,” said Rasmussen. “I love to document the diverse forms and textures that our natural world offers,” he added.
The class is intended for adults with prior photography experience, able to either bring prints, or JPEG-format digital images on a USB flash drive. Following a morning of presentation, the afternoon will be spent critiquing up to four examples of each participant’s work and discussing how those pictures might be improved.
The class can accommodate a minimum of five and a maximum of 12 students.
Rasmussen has lectured at the Art Institute of Portland and was a long-time member of a Polaroid Art Photography Group. Prior to joining The Oregonian, he worked for the Orange County Register and the Associated Press in southern California. He started in photography at The Missoulian in his Montana hometown.
