Students needn't have any previous experience to enter the Photo I workshop, which covers the fundamentals of snapping with both film and digital cameras. Important topics include focus depth, metering, learning to say "cheese" in multiple languages, and stop and show action. After completing Photo I, pupils may leap into Photo II seminars, where a deeper exploration of the craft features a rundown of lens perspectives and filters, as well as flash work and instruction on camera equipment, and proper film and print storage. Both Photo I and Photo II workshops run every four to six weeks and include two sessions on consecutive nights from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The photo-composition workshop teaches participants how to construct images that evoke a desired response from the viewer, and is currently scheduled for Tuesday, October 30, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Cole/Marr Photography Workshops

In 1975, photographers Kristen Cole and David Marr founded their eponymous workshops in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, with only a darkroom, some developing equipment, and a classroom that could barely hold five students and a small grizzly bear. After 20 years of educating New Englanders, the talented duo relocated its expanding school to Boise to impart the duo's commercial and artistic expertise to students in the Treasure Valley. Cole/Marr Photography Workshops now illuminates the art of image capture in Boise's renovated Cultural Center, which houses the school's three darkrooms, studio and framing areas, digital workstations, and a photo library. Open to new framers and advanced snappers alike, the workshops' curriculums span fundamentals of both traditional and digital photography, with seminars on topics such as the darkroom process, Photoshop editing, and portraiture. Pupil and instructor galleries inspire with beautiful shots, many taken during photo safaris led by Cole and Marr to destinations as diverse as the contents of a communal diary.


Tips

  • “The pictures I take are now sharper, better lit, and composed prior to editing since taking these classes. I am more motivated to take great pictures first and edit...”

    “The pictures I take are now sharper, better lit, and composed prior to editing since taking these classes. I am more motivated to take great pictures first and edit them slightly later. David is a great instructor who inspires creativity and fun with photography.”

  • “Great class, learned so much in two nights!”
