    Date: October 13, 2017
    Time: 5:00 PM - 9:30 PM CDT
    Registration: Register Now
    Event Description:
    UNIQUELY SMITHVILLE!  This event is for photographers of all levels to shoot pictures of sets, models and historic Smithville.  Live music, speakers, vendors and more add to this fun day in historic downtown Smithville. 

    FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13
    5pm-7pm:  Wine & Cheese photographer's reception, LPAA Gallery on Main photo/art show opening "Uniquely Smithville", 206 Main Street.

    7:30pm:  CLASS:  Star Trails and Astro Photography, 312 Main Street. INSTRUCTOR: Victor Watson, Schertz Photography School & Studio - www.SchertzPhoto.com


    CLASS DESCRIPTION: One of the super powers a camera instills is the ability to bend time — to capture microseconds, or to show hours in a single frame. Combine this power with near total darkness and a photographer can show the very motion of the heavens. With the advent of digital photography, star trail photography has become accessible to just about anyone with a modern dSLR or mirrorless camera. This class will help you understand the planning needed and the process to obtain the final result.
