PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES, WORKSHOPS & PRIVATE SESSIONS

PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES

Photography II – Mondays 6-8+ pm starting August 7 
This class is for anyone who has taken the Introduction to Photography Class or has similar experience. We’ll delve more deeply into some of the topics covered in the Intro Class, such as the use of depth of field and shutter speed as compositional tools, light and lighting, and composition and the art of seeing. We’ll have shooting time in each class to practice different types of photography, including still life, portrait, landscape and close-up photography. Each week will also include a critique session to review homework assignments. The goal is to help you take your photography to the next level and get you consistently shooting high quality images. You should have experience using your DSLR camera and able to do some basic image editing (Photoshop, Elements or Lightroom is preferred, but editors such as iPhoto, Picassa, etc. are fine). Click for more info…
