    OFFERED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE HAW RIVER CANOE & KAYAK COMPANY Nothing can be more beautiful than a full moon rising above a Piedmont lake. There is just something magical about moonbeams and water — and sharing the experience of looking at the moon with someone special, even if that someone special is just you. Participants arrive early enough in the evening to practice paddling, enjoy a beautiful sunset and adjust their eyes to the night sky. As the moonlight gets brighter, we will paddle around the lake to enjoy the night sounds. Eventually, we will “raft-up” and lay back to fully take in our surroundings. Ages 50+

  11. Photography Workshop: Manual Exposure

    October 26, 2018, 4:30 PM - 7:00 PM @ Carrboro Century Center

    Do you have a digital SLR and want to move beyond photographing in an automatic or semi-automatic mode, like 'P' or aperture priority? You're a lot smarter than your camera and, with a little guidance, can guide it to an exposure that you like more than it might come up with on your own, particularly when you are photographing a scene with significant dynamic range. We will decide as a group where we are meeting, perhaps at an area garden or woodlands. After reviewing why and how you might want to shoot in manual mode and arming you with strategies for quickly exposing for a photograph the way you want it to look, you will get to practice and get feedback. Come with a digital camera and accessories (such as tripod and flash) with which you are familiar. Instructor: Dilip Barman NOTE: PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED
