Don’t miss your shot. Learn to capture subjects in motion. This class will help you understand action photography. Whether you want to shoot sports, wildlife or your kids on a trampoline this class will show you how to use shutter speed, focusing and camera controls to get the best results. Michael will demonstrate how to freeze action, how to pan with action and how to blur action. During the hands-on demo, students will gain the experience of shooting these concepts as we explore the different camera controls including how to choose the appropriate focus mode. This 3-hour hands-on photo class is part of the series “Fundamental Photography”, and will teach you the building blocks of photography.
