Level 1 is being offered in the morning. Here is the schedule for those who register for both:
– Level 1 is 10:00am to 1:00pm
– Lunch: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
– Level 2 is 2:00pm to 5:00pm

This course is designed to teach you skills to be able to adjust quickly in a variety of shooting situations most commonly found while photographing either for personal work or on assignment.
You will learn and apply how to constantly change, while shooting, four very important elements: aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance – to create a different look and feel of your photos. These changes will be made while you’re shooting so that you can easily adapt to a variety of lighting situations, changing scenes outdoors, as well as different locations with a model, including the inside of a vintage building.
Making spontaneous, creative and intuitive decisions are important keys to becoming more proficient as a photographer and at the same time being able to have complete control over your images. This course will take place in the classroom, then proceed outside for hands on guided instruction. A model will be provided.
