$89 for a BYOB Intro to DSLR Workshop ($200 Value)
During four-hour introductory classes, students tote along their own cameras to learn the basics of their menus, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, and depth of field. Instructors also touch upon concepts of composition as they apply to human subjects and devote time to answering questions and guiding hands-on practice. Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays; students should bring their camera, a pen, and paper, and may bring beverages as well.
Felix Rust Photographers
Husband-and-wife team Felix and Sara inadvertently started a love affair with photography when they began taking pictures of their children every day to share with family members scattered across the globe. Over the years, this personal project has amassed more than 12,000 images and served as the impetus to found Felix Rust Photographers.
Felix and Sara describe their style as "quirky and un-posed," an aesthetic they create using unusual vantage points and washed-out colors. Flipping through the couple’s portfolio, viewers are treated to heartwarming portraits, including a kissing couple captured in the reflective puddles of a red-brick street. Additionally, Felix and Sara collaborate on boudoir images; Felix snaps shots while Sara draws on her experience as a former model to suggest poses, backgrounds, and clothing options.
