Drawing on 15 years of industry experience, Locations Photography's Tammy Graham hones students' photo-trapping skills with comprehensive introductory courses. Aspiring photographers bring their own cameras to the 90-minute studio classes, during which they explore their instrument's basic abilities and the myriad functions that often encumber digital cameras. The expert instructor imparts cautionary tales against common beginner pitfalls and lighting techniques that help reduce overexposure and hammy shadows. Students will also learn posing tips to successfully capture friends and family in natural environments or coax smiles out of stubborn statues.
