Choose from Three Options

  • $29 for a three-hour “Going Manual” photography workshop on October 27, 2013 at 9 a.m. (a $150 value)
  • $29 for a three-hour “Flash Photography” workshop on October 27, 2013 at 12:30 p.m. (a $150 value)
  • $50 for both of the above workshops (a $225 value)

The nationally touring symposium is split into two parts. The first workshop, “The Art of Going Manual,” focuses on shooting sharply focused images by manually tweaking camera settings. Participants learn to control aperture, shutter speed, and ISO to achieve various effects, from blur-less action shots to artistically arranged depth of field. During the second workshop, “Flash Photography for Everyone,” pros explain how investment in a $40 external flash can yield professional-quality photos. Both sessions encourage participants to try out newfound skills with hands-on practice opportunities.

In Focus Learning Center

Fine-art photographers Rod and Robin Deutschamnn founded In Focus Learning Center on a simple premise: a photo's quality depends on lighting, focus, and the photographer's vision. At In Focus Learning Center, they emphasize these keys to quality, downplaying high-tech gear and post-shoot editing. In their classes and symposiums, the shutterbugs focus on "manual photography," the art of manipulating a digital camera's settings to suit the desired shot—which could be a landscape, an infrared image, or an action shot of a baby on its first high-speed chase.

Good class with lots of information. Will consider a follow up class if available.

I invited two other people to join me for this class; we all came away with new information even though two of us had been to previous sessions. Focus Learning Center is an excellent resource that continually offers inspiration for creativity and learning.
