Q:

Do you offer one on one classes for beginners? If so, can the Groupon be used toward that?

Amy R.  asked on  Feb 7, 2013

A:

We do offer one on one classes that would be classified as mentoring. That is $100 per hour for one person for beginners. Classes are usually 2 hours. This would cover camera theory and fundamentals in a lecture style. You can learn aperture, shutter speed, ISO, white balance and exposure compensation. Intermediate would be $150 per hour.

Q:

How much time will be spent on Flash Photography in your in your L & C workshop? Is there space for 2 additional students in your Feb 17th class on L & C? Thanks, Barry

barry l.  asked on  Feb 6, 2013

A:

Yes we have room. 1/2 of the class will be spent on lighting in general. During that time flash and natural light will be covered during that time. Here is the full description Lighting & Composition: This class will be a discussion on photographic composition to give you some tips and ideas of things to look for when taking photos to make them more interesting. We will then get into the specifics of what your camera is doing and how to control it, to get better images. We will explain the fundamentals of how different settings impact your images along with how, when, and why you want to be able to control them so you won't need to leave your camera on automatic. The lighting portion will consist of an explanation of various lighting sources, modifiers and techniques. Recognizing good & bad light will be demonstrated along with how to position your subjects in the best light. There will be a breakout session where it will be helpful to have your camera with you.

Q:

Please expalin- Are you offering 2 class types? A basic and a Flash? Interested in more advanced type stuff, preferably with flasf Thanks Jim

jim  asked on  Feb 3, 2013

A:

We are offering 3 different classes: Basic Camera Functions: This will be a large group lecture style class where we will cover all the basics of digital photography and it will be suited for ANYONE with a digital camera who is a photo enthusiast. NO previous knowledge, skill, or experience is required. Group classes cover the basics of digital cameras such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, gear and many more subjects. Come ready to take notes and soak up tons of information. The class will start out at a very simple level and discuss different types of cameras, camera accessories, computer equipment and software necessary to further develop your photographic hobby. Hands On Photoshoot: Once you understand the camera theory and have spent time going through your manual and learning how to adjust the controls you may be ready to do some hands-on practice where you can learn your camera operation in different situations to achieve specific looks in your images. On this photo shoot we will provide a model and shoot in-studio & outside. We will demonstrate & discuss posing, backgrounds, lighting and many other topics as they relate to shooting. It is expected that attendees have a comfortable knowledge of their gear as we will not be able to instruct on basic camera functions during this live photo shoot. Lighting & Composition: This class will be a discussion on photographic composition to give you some tips and ideas of things to look for when taking photos to make them more interesting. We will then get into the specifics of what your camera is doing and how to control it, to get better images. We will explain the fundamentals of how different settings impact your images along with how, when, and why you want to be able to control them so you won't need to leave your camera on automatic. The lighting portion will consist of an explanation of various lighting sources, modifiers and techniques. Recognizing good & bad light will be demonstrated along with how to position your subjects in the best light. There will be a breakout session where it will be helpful to have your camera with you.
