You kind of know your way around your camera menu and you feel comfortable shooting in aperture-priority or shutter-priority modes or even manual, but you ask yourself "What's next, what now?". Have you ever thought about not only taking technically but also visually appealing images? Did you ever hear about the "Rule of Thirds", but then you really haven't applied it to your photograpy yet?
Then, this workshop is perfect for you! As a class of my advanced series, we will go through the concept of composition, discuss and apply the "Rule of Thirds" and talk about other compositional tools and guidelines. After the workshop, your images will draw the viewer's attention because there is "something" in the picture that most people feel, but cannot describe. You will know how to evoke that feeling.
As a prerequiste for this advanced workshop, you will need a basic understanding of your camera and its settings. We can go briefly over some camera specifics, but this will only be for a short warm-up period before moving into the compositional excercises. If you would like to particate in this workshop, but you don't have the basic understanding of your camera and digital photography yet, I recommend that you take my "Digital Photography 101" workshop before taking this workshop.
For this workshop, we are going to meet at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden (Eastern Parkway Entrance, Subway station "Eastern Parkway / Brooklyn Museum", 2/3 trains) which gives us plenty of opportunities to sharpen our sense for composition and visual awareness. Depending on the weather conditions, we will mainly spent our time around the Japanese Garden and the Steinhard Conservatory.
Entrance to the Botanical Garden is FREE at this time and you are welcome stay as long as you want after our workshop until the park closes at 6pm!
