Advanced Photography

You’ve got your camera. You’ve got your lenses. You’ve got your editing software. You know how to use them all, basically or more so. Still, there are photos you see – be it in your mind or in other photographers’ portfolios – that make you say, “Ok, now how do I get THAT?” As with any art form, photography is all about experience, experimentation, risk-taking and observation.

In this workshop, we’ll look at everyone’s work and have positive but frank discussions on how to get to that photo you know is out there waiting for you to take. You will learn how a few basic bits of knowledge and technique can make that good photo a great photo and you will come away from this workshop knowing how to continue to expand your abilities and see photography as something with no ceiling on how beautifully and specifically you can create the images you want.

Subjects covered include advanced photographic techniques regarding both natural and artificial light, composition, conditions, situations, the use of camera and lens settings and the full manual mastery of your photographic tools (including software,) and much more. We plan on covering low-light interior photography, landscape, street photography, studio lighting, event photography, portrait, sports and more. It also should be noted that this is a very interactive class and is open for the discussion of any style and philosophy regarding the art form.

It is asked that you possess some sort of camera that offers full manual control and that it, preferably, be an interchangeable lens camera (be that traditional DSLR or mirrorless.) It does NOT have to cost thousands of dollars. It just has to be able to do what you tell it to. This workshop can benefit anyone who has a fair amount of prior experience with photography and photographic tools and/or a reasonable understanding of basic camera settings and techniques. It also will have plenty for the more advanced photographer.
