Participants explore historic Riverfront Park and the graceful architecture of the old naval base while learning from experienced instructors. The class focuses on the theory and practice of picture taking, including photo composition and perspective as well as camera settings such as ISO, f-stop, shutter speed, and exposure. After breaking for lunch, students join up with those attending only the photo walk, venturing through scenic areas to put photographic skills to use with the cameras and manuals that they’ve brought along. Point-and-shoot cameras are welcome, as are more complex SLR cameras.
The House of NyghtFalcon
Coming to photography after an eclectic career that has seen him earn a PhD in biblical theology and win a Computerworld Smithsonian medal for contributions to technology, Falcon—The House of NyghtFalcon's founder and head photographer—specializes in emotionally powerful, naturally lit photos that reveal unseen perspectives in familiar sights. His handpicked photographic associates undergo three years of apprenticeship before donning the mantle of full partner. Basic and advanced seminars mix photographic theory with hands-on learning, teaching students how to master cameras' arcane functions, frame shots, and determine the shutter speed at which time folds back in on itself.
