Course Description

This class centers on People Portraits using available lighting and fill flash. You will learn: the camera settings and lenses best suited for portraits, how to communicate with a person to get a natural reaction/smile, how to take photos of children and pets, and the use of props. This class will not teach you about studio photography, but rather it will "focus" on real-life pictures that you might see in Life Magazine or National Geographic. The class will be taught by an actual photojournalist who worked for a daily newspaper as well as Associated Press. Bring your smart phone or digital camera, your owner's manual and a flash drive. Also bring your laptop, smart phone or mobile device with a few of your photos to share in class.
