Lessons and Demos for the Family Photographer workshops help students take their family snapshots from humdrum and amateurish to artistic and technically sound. Lectures cover everything from studying composition techniques and manual camera settings to improving reaction time to capture fleeting images. The Classic Images class focuses on perfecting traditional-looking family portraits, while the Signature Style class highlights techniques to give those portraits a more unique and contemporary touch. A demo shoot also lets students put theory into practice with the help of a live model. Participants should bring their own digital cameras and equipment.
Digital Photo Academy
As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in. Since 2007, the business has facilitated workshops that explore all aspects of digital imagery, from operating cameras and uploading digital files to editing images and airbrushing realistic mustaches. Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
