Photography 102: Composition & Creative Exposure, Classroom and Workshop

  • Jun 1, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

The purpose of the class and workshop is to teach the basic elements of composition and creative exposure, and to spend time "in the field", applying those elements. Additionally, the class will introduce a methodology that photographers can use in composing and executing their images.

This class is the third class of a 3-part series (Photo 100, 101, and 102). I highly recommend that you consider signing up for all three classes, especially if you are new to digital photography. Each of the three classes has its own event page, and you must sign up on each event page individually, if you wish to attend each class.

There is no cost for the class. The class size will be limited 30 persons.

The class and workshop together will go from 10:00 PM until about 8:00 PM.

Participants must bring their camera manual, because the class will go back to it again and again.

This class will have two distinct parts. The first part will be at the library, and will cover the elements of composition and creative exposure. We will also introduce a thought process for creating images. This portion will last approximately 4-5 hours.

We will then break for dinner/snack and travel over to Walter Jones Park for the workshop portion of the class. The workshop portion will last an additional 2-3 hours.

At the workshop, we will spend some time at each of 5 scenarios, where the group will discuss what we want the pictures to show, the composition, and exposure elements. We will also work together to take our pictures and compare notes amongst the group. For the workshop portion, you will want to ensure that the lens(es) you are carrying can cover the focal lengths from 18mm to 200mm.

Class requirements for everyone:

- Bring something to take notes.

- Digital camera with fresh batteries.
- Empty memory card.
- The camera's instruction manual.

For the workshop:

- Close toed shoes (for walking through the woods)

- Bug spray

- Water to drink

Although attendance at the Photo 100 and 101 classes is not a prerequisite, participants should have a good understanding of how their camera works, how to shoot in manual mode, and know how to make adjustments to the camera settings. Please review the Photo 100 and 101 topics to ensure that you know what those items are.

    Fantastic course! I'd recommend to anyone. I especially liked the "newspaper assignment" exercise, and seeing the results from different photographers.

    Interesting story:

    1) We were tasked with coming up with a picture for a newspaper.
    2) We commented on the new walkway at the park.
    3) There's an article about that walkway in today's paper!

    What time do you anticipate we will break after the classroom portion, and when will we reconvene at the park?

    1 · May 19, 2013

    • Larry H.

      As the description says, the class will go from 10 AM to 8 PM. How much time the break in between the library and the park will be based on what time the break occurs, what the class wants to do, and how much time will be left for daylight. If your attendance in the class is dependent on how much of a break there will be, then my suggestion would be to cancel your RSVP, because there are always too many variables to be able to reliably say when the break will occur, and how long it will be.

      May 21, 2013

    • Scott J. S.

      It's not dependent. Just trying to relieve our babysitter during the interval. I'll make plans under the assumption the break will be brief.

    I know this....I was in the park yesterday, doing practice shots and the mousqitos were really bad. If they are that bad, I won't last 15 minutes. I had repellent on and still got swarmed.

    For anyone who is interested..there is an old church on San Jose Blvd south, its on the left and looks like its under renovation, has large stain glass windows. Im going over this afternoon , when the sun cast on the Windows and see what photos I can get. I pass this church everyday, has not been opened for a ling time, the front doors are off the hinges, might be able to peak inside.

    Don't forget bug spray. We have long given up on DEET and other unnecessary chemicals for an inexpensive and just as effective solution: 15 DROPS each of these essential oils in 8 ounces of water: Lemongrass, Eucalyptus, Citronella. You can get a sprayer for a buck at WalMart.

    You might want to check out the Mandarin General Store just down the street from Walter Jones Park after our Event...or come back Sunday 12-4 to get shots of the inside as well... http://www.mandarinmuseum.net/visit/general-store-and-post-office

    Hi Larry,
    I took this class last year but had to leave before the "in the field" portion. I don't want to take up class head count, but I wondered if I could join for the part I missed.
    Thanks,
    Novik

    • Larry H.

      You are welcome to join for the park portion of the class, but understand that I'm going to primarily be working with the folks who attended the classroom portion.

      April 16, 2013

    • Novik L.

      Understood. No problem.

      April 16, 2013
