The beginner’s photo walk gives students the chance to explore the features on their DSLR or point-and-shoot cameras, starting with a one-hour tutorial from a professional photographer. Students will test out the concepts they’ve learned, such as aperture settings and shutter speed, while snapping photos during a one-hour walk through Olympic Cauldron or Sunset Beach.
The Long Exposure Waterscapes 101 course delves further into using aperture and shutter speed to capture photos in low light while explaining how to identify subjects that will work using long exposure techniques. The instructor recommends that students bring a DSLR camera with a tripod and a 10-stop ND filter, or denser neutral-density filter, though there may be a limited number of filters on hand to borrow.
Students in both courses will have access to a password-protected gallery of the images they take during the course.
Amanda Kerr Photography
While helming various digital and web firms in the corporate world afforded her many perks, Amanda Kerr couldn't relinquish her passion for photography and film, so she relinquished the corporate world instead. Since 2003, Kerr has been busy establishing a stock-footage business, getting her degree in photography, and helming photo shoots for top clients such as Eden Fashion Boutique, MAC Marketing, and the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Her hands-on teaching approach helps students grasp photography fundamentals as well as new techniques, whether they're snapping professional-level pictures with their phones or harnessing their camera's flash to take photos of strangers kissing in a movie theater.
