Great photographs are created through the right mixture of angle, light, subject, story, and spirit. To capture all of these ingredients in the snap of a shutter, a photographer needs the skill set to potentially assess, frame, and shoot in a fraction of a second. In this class, we will stock our photographic “tool box” through studying the essential elements of taking a great picture. We will explore documentary, lighting, the rule of thirds, camera and computer processing equipment, and composition. We will also examine ways to manage workflow and the particulars of portrait, landscape and commercial photography. By the end of the class, students will feel more comfortable with their ability to make a stronger, more engaging photograph. Please bring your camera to class.
