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.
Timing demands an ability to anticipate, see and capture peak action. Henri Cartier-Bresson, the father of photojournalism, called this element in taking pictures, "the decisive moment." It is an essential ingredient in both landscape and people photography. In this class, we will talk about basic flash techniques, shutter speeds and f-stops. We will look at the Garden in terms of weather, time of day and season, and study successful photographs of nature. An off camera flash and tripod are recommended.
