Course Description: What is it? Understanding light, and how the camera works. Best of all, the backdrop for this exciting photographic adventure will be beautiful and friendly Marblehead! You get a chance to learn how to use the camera that has been sitting in the closet, or you have had in auto mode forever, OR learn how to use that wonderful holiday gift you received!
Learn how to include people in your frame with a gentle approach to street photography. From street portraits to candid shots, every day will bring new opportunities to practice techniques and get over the fear of photographing strangers in the street.
all in the eyes
We will also spend time learning composition which will lead to stronger images. Learning to see around you and pay attention to all that is around you. Color, light, shape, space.
This workshop will give you the skills to create story-telling images wherever your travels may take you and your camera. You will also learn how to turn any photo walk in a familiar place into an exciting adventure by learning to see the extraordinary in the mundane. We start with a classroom presentation or critique followed by a photo walk. We will explore different neighborhoods daily and practice what was learned in the classroom.
You will leave the workshop with a better understanding of your camera and the world around you, a few pictures to frame for your walls and a stronger desire to carry your camera around with you everywhere you go..
Equipment Needed: A camera that gives you the manual mode. If you do NOT have a DSLR, some of the more developed (get it?) point and shoots usually have this option. A VERY basic photo upload application. Further classes will deal with applications and editing.
