Experienced photographers Marilyn Scavo and Carlos Osorio help students sharpen their skills and realize their full picture-taking potential through hands-on learning. In beginners classes, up to 20 students free cameras from the dull tyranny of automatic settings, exploring the nuances of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. Held in a studio setting, the fast-paced workshop reveals tips for surmounting traditional photographic roadblocks through insights on the use of flash and natural light, shooting fundamentals, and how to placate a prima donna lens cap. Shutterbugs provide their own digital SLR camera, lens, and manual, and instructors furnish snacks, drinks, and detailed knowledge.
Photo Workshops’ South Beach night walk unleashes up to 15 students into the city’s scintillating neon nightscape to trap its dynamic vitality within still frames. After meeting near the corner of Ocean Drive and 14th Avenue, students glean a brief primer on night photography and camera settings. Night walks are intended for individuals with a basic understanding of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, and students provide their own camera, tripod or monopod, and enough cash to tip the moon for its lighting services.
