Choose from Three Options

Composition in the Field workshops don’t just introduce students to the technical settings of their cameras—they focus on changing the way these budding photographers see the world from behind the lens. During each open-air outing, an experienced photographer teaches students a range of 12 or more techniques such as selective focusing, demonstrating how to blur the background and keep the foreground in focus. He or she teaches students how to manipulate natural light and how to use panning to make it seem as though subjects are a whirlwind of motion.

Upcoming photo ops include snapping shots of the Toronto Waterfront, immortalizing the quiet wonder of Rockwood Conservation Area and finding the unexpected beauty of a rusted truck at the junkyard. Participants should bring their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to their picturesque locale.

Designed for those who have just bought Photoshop or are using a free trial, the Beginner Photoshop course covers the basic elements of transferring photos from a camera or to a website, cropping photos, and adjusting the contrast and brightness levels. Students will learn the basics of the Curves tool, which allows users to easily adjust the exposure of their photo. A laptop with an installed version of Photoshop is required for the course.
