FOUNDATION CLASSES


A good foundation is essential in anything you do.  So get your foundation in photography with our three foundation classes.  These classes will help you build the skills you desire for your photography. 


Photography 101

This class is designed to get you off your A...Automatic, that is.  Stop letting your camera master you, and become the master of your camera, by learning the photography triangle:  ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed. You'll also learn about design and composition techniques used by professionals to make your photography stand out from the crowd. 

Each class will be hands-on and requires you to practice throughout the week.

Requirements:  Digital SLR camera, with adjustments for ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.  Nikon and Canon cameras are the easiest, but bring your camera's manual just in case.  Oh....and make sure your battery is charged!  A Notebook is provided for you to keep up with your classwork and assignments.

Prerequisite Class(es):  None

Class length:  4 weeks, once per week for 75 minutes.

Cost:  $100  ​$85 Introductory price!



Photography 102

Well, you're off your A.  You're shooting better.  You're excited by what you're seeing, and you family and friends are commenting on how great your photos are!  So, are you ready to take the next step?  OF COURSE YOU ARE!

Welcome to Photography 102.  In this class we'll teach you how to fine-tune your camera using a calibration target to customize your white balance.  This class will be more hands-on, and will include an onsite shoot with models.

Requirements: Same as Photography 101.  Plus - calibration target.

Prerequisite Class(es): Photography 101, or instructor approval

Class length: 4 weeks, once per week for 60 minutes. On-site shoot will be 90 minutes.

Cost: $125



Natural Lighting

You're happy now!  Your pics are looking so much better, so it's now time to add the "WOW" factor!

We know light is the basis for our photography.  In this class we'll harness the sun to make the most eye catching images you've shot so far.  We'll use a variety of reflectors and modifiers to show you how to add substance to each shot, pushing your photography further than you thought possible!  There will also be another on-site shoot with models for you to sharpen your skills.

Requirements: Same as Photography 101 and 102. Plus - 5-way reflector.

Prerequisite Class(es): Photography 101 and 102, or instructor approval

Class length: 4 weeks, once per week for 60 minutes. On-site shoot will be 90 minutes.

Cost: $125



ADVANCED COURSES


Posing For Portraiture 

By now you know one thing for sure - it's hard to get your subject at ease when they're trying to "pose" for the camera. This is when you have to show why you're the professional, and why they chose YOU to capture their special moment.

Each week we will learn techniques for properly posing subjects, whether it's one, two or TEN people.  You will be shooting as class with models each week.  So bring your A-game.

Requirements: Same as Photography 101 and 102. 

Prerequisite Class(es): Photography 101 and 102, or instructor approval

Class length: 4 weeks, once per week for 60 minutes. 

Cost: $150



Macro Photography

This is one of my favorite classes!  

Do you ever stop and look and the beautiful things around you? The veins in Swiss Chard; patterns in dry earth; rings in a log?  In each session you will learn the the art of Macro photography - taking small things and making them larger than life - and making small, detailed things you may have overlooked before look spectacular.   This will be a lot of hands-on, and a lot of fun!

Requirements: Same as Photography 101 and 102.  Macro lens is not necessary for class participation.

Prerequisite Class(es): Photography 101 and 102, or instructor approval

Class length: 4 weeks, once per week for 60 minutes.

Cost: $125
