Groups of 20–25 students swear off the automatic setting of digital SLRs as they learn to operate knobs and dials during beginner photography classes. Inside the studio, brains steep in knowledge of exposure, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, empowering them to judge the best settings for capturing grand vistas or detailed headshots of a ladybug. Students are welcome to bring their own cameras, and snacks and drinks brought from home refresh creative juices.
Photo walks along the Santa Monica pier extend classroom skills into the real world. With groups of fellow camera clickers and instructor guidance, participants capture dramatic landscapes, architectural photographs, and portraits.
Isla Studio's professional photographers expresses the world and its people through richly colored fine-art images. Whether dealing with landscapes, buildings, portraits, or UFOs, the team waits for a moment to reveal itself, combining the timing of photojournalism with a carefully considered emotional resonance. They also expand the shutter-snapping community with small classes that explore the ins and outs of digital photography.
