Learn by doing, find your voice, take your photography to the next level

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Increase your awareness of light and composition. Learn to see the way the camera sees.
  • Develop your style through focusing on your interests and realizing the impact of your images.
  • Increase your technical and creative problem solving abilities when approaching a shot.

HOW WE DO IT

  • We will increase your technical abilities by creating a library of techniques to draw when approaching a shot. We will do this by looking at specific photography areas of portraits, macro, travel, flash and landscape.
  • We will focus on style development through in and out of class shooting exercises and reviews of work. Pay attention to what qualities are attractive to you in other photos. Examine them by subject, elements, and theme.
