Class Descriptions

Saturday - Natural Light that Looks Natural

Are you tired of photos where things look worse than they did when you were there? In this class, we'll give you some great techniques for being able to figure out how to get the most of the available light in the scene! These techniques will help you to create better pictures of people in their environments right away. The best part? It works on other subjects too!

Class topics may include: Exposure value and Color temperature; What is good light and where can I find it?; What is the "right" exposure?; Should I shoot JPEG or Raw?; Tripods really?

Sunday - Take That Flash OFF of Your Camera.

On-camera flash is horrible. No one looks good in it. Why? Because the light is harsh and straight on, and that is the reason for red-eye, and etc... Why take the flash off the camera? 1) the average hot shoe flash is robust enough to light most of what we need. Especially since what we usually need is supplementary light.

Class topics may include: Ambient vs. Flash; Getting the flash off-camera; what kind of flash do I need?; light modifiers; Why are my people blue and my background orange?

Sunday Evening (Open to all attendees) - Fix it in post?

At this point in the weekend, you should be ready to start thinking in terms of "making a good image great" instead of "Saving that image(hopefully!). We'll show you how using Lightroom, iPhoto or Photoshop you can make your best images better!

Sunday Evening (Bonus for full-weekend attendees) - Feedback and review

Bring your best five images from this weekend and we'll discuss what works, what could use improvement and general tips as to how to push it to the next level.
