Learn To Think Like A Photographer-A DC Photography Class

NOTE:

  • This is my version of a "phone photography" class. And although you'll be using the phone on your camera, this ain't a typical "camera phone class".
    • We won't be talking about "apps" or "filters" or any "post-processing" tips and tricks.
    • Instead, we'll be concentrating on photography, composition, and camera operation.
    • As a result, you'll become a more observant, thoughtful and skillful, photographer.
  • In short, by using the camera on your phone, you'll learn about the foundational thought process of composition and camera operation that we use when creating a photograph.

  • If you’d like more advanced studies and practice, while using a more advanced camera, please register for the Introduction to Photography class or the Getting To Know Your Camera class. (Link below).****

Class Description

Learn To Think Like A Photographer-A DC Photography Class

What You'll Learn

If we're gonna be photographers, we gotta think like photographers. In a nutshell, learning to "think like a photographer" is what this class is about. Specifically, we'll talk about how to use our cameras during the process of creating a photograph. We'll also cover photography basics. Finally, we'll put into practice what we talk about' about. What I mean by that is we'll relate what we do with our camera to what we think about during making the picture (composition). As a result, we'll make better pictures AND they'll be compositions that are uniquely yours.

During The Learn To Think Like A Photographer class we'll get into everything we do as photographers to create our photographs. We'll break down how we create a photograph step by step. When we break down and examine what we do as photographers we'll be more involved in the composition. When we get involved in the process of composition we make better photographs. During the class, we'll think of our camera as a tool to create the best photographs that we possibly can. When we understand the tool that we work with then we'll use that tool skillfully. When we do that, the camera becomes less important and our thought process becomes more important.

How You'll Learn

During this hands-on, 90 minute class, you'll get familiar with what we do as photographers. We’ll go through the process of seeing something to photograph to what we do with our camera and our mind to create the photograph. In addition, we'll think about the intent of composition and camera operation. While applying thought to what we do as photographers during the class, you'll automatically realize the best picture that you can make and then you'll make it. You'll learn by doing.

  • While working with Sam, you'll be introduced to the process of "thinking like a photographer". Also, while using the camera on your phone, you'll be engaged in every aspect of the creation of your picture.
  • During the class, you'll be given "assignments" to do in order to help you solidify the course material.
  • This is a very basic class and is geared to photographers regardless of camera or experience.

1 meeting, 90 minutes (1.5 hours)
Limited to 8 participants

  1. Hi Sam,

    My wife loves photography and I wanted to book a class with you for her as a gift. Is your session on September 28th still available?

  2. Hi Sam – I’m looking to sign up for your intro to photography class (Wednesday evening June). I do not have a fancy camera, as I’m not sure which one to buy yet…DSLR or mirrorless. Do your classes require us to bring our own camera or do we practice with a “class” camera?

    1. Hi Therese,

      Thank you for your interest in my photography classes.
      If you were to register for the Introduction to Photography class, you would be required to bring your own camera.
      And you’d get the most benefit from the Introduction to Photography class if that camera had “manual exposure mode” functionality.

      While I’m reluctant to make recommendations on what camera you should get, I can offer you some guidance in the form of a post on my website.

      I do offer a class, titled Learn To Think Like A Photographer, that requires nothing more than the camera on your phone (no “fancy” camera needed). This may be a good start for you if you’re reluctant to purchase a new, “fancy”, camera.

  3. Hey Sam,
    I’d like to sign up for your Wednesday night group photography class, but I know I’ll be late to one of the meetings. Do you allow for late arrivals?

  4. I would like to take the class on Mon Feb 11, 11:30-2:30. Do you take Paypal? If you share an e-mail address, I can use Paypal w/ that. Alternatively, will you let me bring a check to the session?

  5. Hello,

    I’m interested in the Nov 18th Intro to Photography course but I’m not sure I understand the end date. It has it listed as either Dec 2, 9th or the 16th. Can you please clarify when the class ends or do students choose their end date at time of enrollment?

    Thank you

    1. Hello Jennifer,

      Thank you for your interest in the Introduction to Photography class that starts on Nov 18th.

      My apologies for the confusion. When looking at the abbreviated description of the class here I can see where the confusion arises. Thank you for pointing this out.

      The class starts on Nov. 18 and ends on Dec. 16.

      The class meets on four Sundays from 10am-1pm on Nov. 18, Dec. 2, Dec. 9 and Dec. 16. We skip Nov. 25 due to the Thanksgiving holiday.

      Please contact me if you have further questions.

      Best Regards,

      Sam
