The Mastering Series of classes is recommended for DSLR digital camera owners only.
To capture something unique, as you see it, you must be proficient in light and exposure, composition and timing. Mastering the appropriate techniques for using your camera's tools will ensure success in every situation.
Edward Weston said that composition is the strongest way of seeing. Building on our understanding of light, we will look at how to use natural light to shape our compositions. We will also examine traditional rules of composition and the work of selected landscape photographers. In this class, we will talk about depth of field, where to hang the frame in capture, and cropping using Adobe® Photoshop®. The use of a tripod is recommended.
