Children’s photography workshop

The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society, 858 W. Fourth St., will be holding the fourth in a series of workshops for children, a study of photography, from 9 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. April 13. The workshop is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is strongly requested.

The workshop will be led by Wayne Palmer, owner of Palmer Multimedia Imaging. A short lecture on the history of photography as well as tips on achieving the best photograph possible will be given by Palmer, followed by an outdoor session, weather permitting.

Children are encouraged to bring a camera, cellphone, or other device capable of taking a photograph. A limited number of digital cameras will be available.

Willing participants can email their favorite two to three photographs to the museum to be printed and displayed for a short period of time. A souvenir picture frame will be given to each participant to frame their favorite photo. A snack will be provided.

Palmer was one of the original founders of the Susquehanna Valley Shutterbugs which has met at the museum for over 25 years. He has had a lifelong relationship with photography starting almost 50 years ago.

Through college he spent more time in the darkroom than the classroom and was the photo editor for both newspaper and yearbook for Bloomsburg State College. He was an account executive for Guardian Photo before launching out on his own, starting Palmer Multimedia Imaging 25 years ago. He was an early adopter of digital imaging as well as a user of Photoshop. He currently is a beta tester for Photoshop Lightroom, Bridge, Adobe Camera Raw, Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements as well as software editing programs. He has served as technical editor on 15 book titles and is the co-author of Photoshop Restoration and Retouching third and fourth editions which has been reprinted worldwide in eight languages.

An application is available online at the museum’s website www.tabermuseum.org.
