Photographer Stephanie Adriana coaches photographers of all experience levels during four-hour overviews of basic camera function and techniques. In a classroom setting, she teaches them how to control ISO image sensors; how to use aperture and shutters to control light, depth of field, and movement; and how to arrange subjects in a composition without resorting to a human pyramid. Throughout the course, she divulges step-by-step tips and practice exercises. Following the workshop, she guides students outdoors for two-hour, on-location photo shoots, during which they practice the techniques they learned.
Students meet at the University of Utah for workshops on Wednesday, July 18 and Saturday, August 18. Workshops begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m., and the photo expeditions depart at 2:30 p.m.

About Capturing True Emotion
Val Westover and Stephanie Adriana, both authors and photographers, draw from diverse artistic backgrounds. Val once trained hundreds of photographers as the manager of a nationwide portrait studio, and Stephanie has seen her work featured in an array of photography and fashion magazines. Applying fine-tuned artistic styles, they snap candid photojournalistic compositions and posed portraits of new couples, newborns, mothers-to-be, families, and secret families.
They also pass on their skills through step-by-step workshops, during which they use a blend of professional tips and practice exercises to teach the basics of ISO, shutter, and aperture alongside applied artistic principles. They then give protégés free rein to practice what they’ve learned in hands-on, on-location photo safaris, during which students capture shots of wildlife and people.
