The three-hour digital-photography workshop teaches students how to identify and capture great shots using their digital cameras. Instruction covers tripods, lenses, flash usage, and more before a hands-on shootari to practice newly learned skills.

During the two-hour iPhone-photography workshop, students learn to capture compelling images with their mobile devices. The class covers controlling exposure and focus, overlaying guides for better composition, shooting panoramic and HDR, and using various lenses. Instructors also detail shooting quality iPhone videos, harnessing apps, and sharing photos on Instagram. A free iPhone app is included with the class.

Photo Elan

Married for nine years and a photography team for five, Brian and Jennifer Hartman bring an artistic touch and approach to their on-location photography. Employing a photojournalistic style and dramatic lighting, they capture solo subjects and groups during posed and candid moments, earning critical acclaim from the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and The Knot and placing images in the pages of Elle and Seattle Bride magazines.

Not content to simply point and shoot, the Hartmans light compositions using chiaroscuro or high-exposure natural lighting and often accentuate subjects with extreme angles, forced perspective, or unique natural surroundings. They shoot in vibrant color or black and white, and can edit photos to enhance colors or, by request, replace each subject’s face with Winston Churchill’s. Though the Hartmans use professional tools, they’re glad to help students break into photography via ultra-accessible devices such as the iPhone—following in the footsteps, they note, of Annie Leibovitz, who endorsed the iPhone’s camera on NBC Nightly News in 2011. When not conducting on-location sessions, Brian also leads large-scale workshops in which they pass on their knowledge through graphic slideshows and hands-on training.
