- $33.50 for a five-hour interactive photography symposium on November 17, 2013 at 10 a.m. (a $150 value)
Dubbed "Before the Shutter Clicks", the nationally touring symposium focuses on manual photography, the art of shooting sharply focused images by tweaking camera settings. Eschewing post-shoot editing and fancy gear, the symposium centers on using gear photographers already own in new ways, with hands-on practice sessions focused on setting adjustments for landscape, portrait, close-up, and infrared photography; participants also practice working with a flash.
In Focus Learning Center
Fine-art photographers Rod and Robin Deutschamnn founded In Focus Learning Center on a simple premise: a photo's quality depends on lighting, focus, and the photographer's vision. At In Focus Learning Center, they emphasize these keys to quality, downplaying high-tech gear and post-shoot editing. In their classes and symposiums, the shutterbugs focus on "manual photography," the art of manipulating a digital camera's settings to suit the desired shot—which could be a landscape, an infrared image, or an action shot of a baby on its first high-speed chase.
