$59 for a Four-Hour Digital-Photography Workshop and Two-Hour Photo Expedition ($450 Value)
In four-hour workshops led by photographers Stephanie Adriana and Val Westover from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., participants follow the path of becoming undisputed masters of their digital cameras. Classes cover such picture-snapping essentials as light measurement, ISO control, and aperture adjustment, widening students' abilities to capture movement and blur backgrounds. After workshops conclude, pupils head out on a two-hour camera expedition from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., putting their new skills into practice in real-life environments.
Capturing True Emotion
Capturing True Emotion is driven by a dynamic band of instructors who rove across the continent with cameras and teaching skills in hand. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversize head, the educators provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization, giving participants complete control over all of their camera settings. During the hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, students convene at a tantalizing location to practice skills such as controlling depth of field by adjusting the aperture, composing a family portrait so there’s not always a burning zeppelin in the background, using alternative angles to avoid red eye, and other techniques.
