Whats so bad about the Big Bad Wolf? At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less. Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker? You be the judge! This tongue-in-cheek version of two childrens favorites uses humor and music to explore our fear of things we dont understand. This is one of our most popular and funniest productions, and includes lots of audience participation. Show runs from July 24 " Aug. 31, 2014.

Through lecture and practice with your own camera and flash unit, you will learn the basics of flash operation and how to use the flash more creatively. The first part of the workshop covers the basics; the relationship between flash, ISO (film speed), aperture/F-stop, and shutter speed. The remainder of the workshop will consist of building on your understanding of the basics by concentrating on modifying the flash for more creative control; bouncing flash, using flash off camera, missing flash with available light, painting with flash and fill-flash are discussed and practiced.

Understanding metering and exposure are fundamental to capturing the visual information that you want in your photograph. Without the information that you want, the photograph may fall short of your expectations. We'll cover the variety of metering patterns and exposure modes that are available to us. You'll learn about different types of metering and how they affect the outcome of your picture. We'll also cover manual vs. automatic exposure modes. We'll learn about why you shouldn't always use your camera's suggested exposure settings and about difficult metering situations that can "fool" your camera into producing incorrectly exposed photographs.
