When used thoughtfully your flash can be an important element of your composition and can dramatically improve your photograph…
Through weekly assignments and critiques you will learn to work your SLR camera, become familiar with the technical aspects of photography and create photographs based on your desired compositional outcomes. Once you begin to make compositional choices with the visual effects in mind, your pictures will begin to move beyond the result of luck and you will begin to compose pictures that more accurately represent your desired outcome.
By having a better understanding of how to use their camera, the participants in this class will be able to begin to rely more on their mind, instead of a machine, to make a photograph.
Build on your understanding of basic photography, reinforce your application of photography fundamentals and increase your visual awareness and photographic compositional skills.
Through lecture and practice with their own cameras and flash units the participants in this workshop will learn the basics of flash operation and how to use the flash more creatively and effectively.
