August 22, 2023: "Special Camera Effects" with Tracey Rice | Technical Webinar

Updated: Aug 28, 2023



Join us for the August Technical Webinar: Special Camera Effects with Tracey Rice!


The August Technical Webinar speaker will be Tracey Rice and the topic will be “Special Camera Effects”. The webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, August 22, 2023 at 6:30 pm.


Creating special effects with your camera is not only a good way to practice your camera technique skills, but also a fun way to make some new art! Perhaps you are in a place that’s been photographed by oodles of other photographers. How can you make your photo look different and stand out from the pack?

Maybe you have camera in hand, but don’t see anything to shoot? What if the light isn’t so great, or there are too many people in the way, or you don’t have the “right” lens to create the photo you have in your mind? Or maybe you’re just wanting to pump up your creative juices or are bored shooting the same things all the time?


Then it’s time to push the boundaries of “traditional” photography and explore some in-

camera special effects! Tracey will discuss a bunch of different effects, and NONE of them require any post-processing or expensive extra gear. She’ll show examples of photos using the

effects and explain how you can create these kinds of photos. It does not matter what equipment you own or how skilled you are—you can create WOW photos!
