Have you ever seen an amazing photograph and wondered how it was created? By using your camera’s basic settings and following a few simple rules, you can dramatically improve your photos, creating wonderful works of art. In this hands-on workshop, we will learn the significance of lighting, the rule of thirds, and three basic camera settings that will change everything. Class topics will include learning about exposure, focus, ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Students will be shown a demo of three different camera styles (Point & Shoot, DSLR & a Smartphone), learning how to create better photos with just minor adjustments to each. *This class is hands-on and will be using cameras in class; be sure and bring yours!
Bring one of the following:
a random surprise!
home-made cookies (and recipe, if you’ll share). There will be a prize for the best cookie!
interesting, unique pens and pencils
old technology/gadgets from the last few years
something else you’d like to offer (you will coordinate a 1-1 exchange with the teacher)
to volunteer for this class as a facilitator (we’ll send you info!)
About the teacher, Ben Turney
Computer guy by day, photographer by night, Ben Turney likes to dabble in all things technical and artsy. Naturally, Ben is drawn to photography as photography is both extremely technical and can be wonderfully artistic. While his day job pays the bills, he is a semi-professional photographer who has been "bending light" for over 20 years making interesting and creative images that are more than just photos. He loves the concept of small, informal & local teaching opportunities. He enjoys helping people overcome the technical hurdles in photography by giving them a hands-on experience learning about their camera and how to manipulate it to make photo magic.Join
