Shaker Workshop:
The Art of Composition

Hancock Shaker Village

1843 W Housatonic St., Pittsfield, Massachusetts

If you want to take better photographs, this workshop is for you!  

This workshop begins with a powerpoint presentation during which we’ll discuss how to use the “Rules of Composition” to make better photographs. After the presentation, we’ll put these rules into practice with a walk throughout Hancock Shaker Village to photograph in a variety of locations.

The Instructor, Fred LeBlanc: Leblanc has worked as a professional commercial, corporate and editorial photographer for more than forty years. His award winning photographs have been exhibited in museums, libraries, galleries and juried art shows and have been published on calendars, posters and postcards. Fred is a member of the Springfield Photographic Society and has presented his photographic vision to camera clubs throughout New England.  As a way of giving back to his profession Fred teaches the art of digital photography in his print studio in South Hadley, at Greenfield Community College and at Hancock Shaker Village.  

Workshop fee includes admission to the Village.
