Live, fully interactive learning
This 2 1/2 day introductory workshop offers new photographers a deep dive into the skills you need to make better pictures with a camera. During the workshop, we'll mix it up with informative and inspirational live presentations alternating with shooting exercises that give you the opportunity to test out the techniques we're learning, coming back together after each exercise for Q & A and group discussion.
Your instructor will be "in the room" for face-to-face instruction and feedback during all shooting activities.
You'll see how the camera thinks, reacts and works and learn the relationships among Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO and more. We will explore what makes a good image, including composition, light, and the key component, YOU, the photographer, getting comfortable with seeing and investigating your subjects, whether people, objects, or the natural world, using what you learn during the weekend to expand from taking snapshots to making artistic images. The course includes image reviews, for valuable feedback and examples of how a photographer uses post processing to enhance an image.
This course is fun and informative. You will leave with greater confidence to make pictures you 'll be proud to share!
