  • Easily understand aperture, shutter speed and ISO

  • Learn how to simplify using your camera and photograph as an “extension of yourself”

  • Learn exposure metering techniques

  • Know your camera so you can use your intuitive processes … the key to great photography

  • Take this workshop and you will take better photos of your friends and loved ones.

Level 1 is being offered in the morning and Level 2 is offered in the afternoon:

– Level 1 is 10:15am to 1:15pm

– Break: 1:15pm to 2pm

– Level 2 is 2pm to 4pm

LEVEL 2 (Live Model Shoot):

Students will have the opportunity to shoot a live model in Level 2.

This class is designed to teach you skills to be able to adjust quickly in a variety of shooting situations most commonly found while photographing either for personal work or on assignment.

You will learn and apply how to constantly change, while shooting, four very important elements: aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance – to create a different look and feel of your photos. These changes will be made while you’re shooting so that you can easily adapt to a variety of lighting situations, changing scenes outdoors, as well as different locations with a model, including the inside of a vintage building.

Making spontaneous, creative and intuitive decisions are important keys to becoming more proficient as a photographer and at the same time being able to have complete control over your images. This course will take place in the classroom, then proceed outside for hands on guided instruction. A model will be provided.
