In beginner courses, novice photographers learn camera techniques such as basic settings and shooting in black and white before moving on to more artistic concepts, which include image composition and landscape photography. Month-long courses for more advanced shutterbugs cover topics such as understanding exposure and shooting in manual mode. During this course, students will also receive an introduction to camera equipment and macro- and night-photography techniques. Students should bring their own DSLR or point-and-shoot cameras to both courses along with fresh batteries and the camera manual. Both courses offer feedback on assignments, in-class discussion of images and techniques, and an on-location shoot for practice. Time for questions is also scheduled into both courses.<p>
Weddings are Kara Selby's passion. She's been the bride in one, a guest at several, and the lead photographer at more than 50 matrimonial celebrations. This extensive experience has imbued Kara with an instinctive understanding of these events as a whole, and has trained her to avoid common glitches, such as forgetting to blur the face of an undercover best man. With the help of other shutterbugs at Inspired Photography, Kara captures the intimate details of a bride's big day, from close-up shots of bridal jewellery and bouquets to posed portraits of the wedding party and candid shots of the couple's first dance.
Kara also exports her signature style to portrait photography, snapping heartwarming photos of pregnant mothers, newborns, and families. She frequently swaps traditional eye-level portraits for quirky canted angles and aerial shots of sleeping babies in colour and black and white. Her studio also plays host to playful boudoir shoots that often incorporate props ranging from stilettos and pearls to guitars and umbrellas.
Not content merely to stay behind the lens, Kara passes her substantial image savvy on to pupils via hands-on, in-studio workshops that help nascent photographers get acquainted with their camera’s operations and functions through interactive tutorials and by reading embarrassing diary entries from the operations manual.
