Event Details

This class will help you understand how to shoot in various lighting situations. Successful photographers understand how to “see the light” and they understand how to expose for tricky situations that would fool your cameras light meter. The contrast between highlight, midtone and shadow determines if your photo is going to be flat and boring or crisp and dramatic.

Learn how to position your subject for direct or indirect sun, shade, back lighting, side lighting, shadows or silhouettes. Most importantly, we will discuss how to meter for an area of high contrast, a backlit subject, or a subject with dark shadows. There will be a live shooting demo where students will have the opportunity to shoot as well as a presentation of dramatically lit images. This 3-hour hands-on photo class is part of the series “Fundamental Photography”, and will teach you the building blocks of photography.

What to Bring:
Bring your DSLR camera (no point and shoot cameras) and user manual (can be downloaded from the camera manufacturer) to class, and most of all, your enthusiasm and eagerness to master your camera!  This class is the first step to realizing your vision with photography!
