Community Education

Introduction to LightingINTRODUCTION TO LIGHTING

The Southeast Museum of Photography's workshops are designed for adults of all ages and skill levels.


Saturday, September 22, 9:00am - 4:00pm
Full Day Workshop (Level I*)
Cost: $70.00 for one-day workshop.


*Due to limited space, pre-registration and payment is required at least 24 hours in advance.
Lighting is a basic component of photography yet many photographers do not realize how to utilize it to its fullest potential. This condensed "crash course" will help students to identify lighting patterns, correct for common mistakes, and to optimize their results under specific lighting conditions (i.e. bright sun, shade, etc.), explore diffusion techniques, the use of fill flash, and even gain hands-on experience working in a commercial studio setting. Participants will work with and photograph a model provided for the session.

Movie Matinee


This continuing series will showcase the cinema masterworks of some of the most thoughtful and influential directors in recent decades. Both Stanley Kubrick (UK/USA) and Terence Malick (USA) figure amongst cinema's most unique stylists and each has produced milestone works in twentieth century film culture. Kubrick's work ranges from early masterpieces like Spartacus to rarely seen iconic titles like A Clockwork Orange and the classic war film Paths of Glory. Malick's recent blockbuster The Tree of Life has piqued interest in his earlier visionary works.


Thursday, September 20



Set in the 1950's, this comedy-drama film is based on the classic novel of the same title by Vladimir Nabokov. James Mason plays Humbert, a 40-something British professor of French literature who rents a room from landlady Shelley Winters. Winters immediately falls for the worldly Humbert, but he only has eyes for her nymphet daughter Dolores nicknamed Lolita.

Cinema Essentials


This is the first in a continuing series of sustained explorations of the masterworks of modern cinema. Delving deep into the entire vision of some of cinema's greatest directors, the series starts with the essential masterpieces of Sweden's Ingmar Bergman. From his early, lyrical character studies to the dramatic sweep of his penetrating epics, Bergman's vision and style remains unmistakable and fresh today.

Through a Glass Darkly

The first of what came to be called Bergman's "chamber dramas," which positioned four characters in one place as they interacted with each other like a string quartet; this moody family drama takes place during a twenty-four hour period on a remote island, after Karin (Harriet Andersson) has just been released from a psychiatric hospital and is suffering from severe mental illness.
