The Capturing True Emotion workshop is driven by the dynamic duo of Val Westover, a dedicated author and portrait photographer, and Stephanie Adriana, an author and award-winning fine-art photographer. By fusing their narrative, tech-savvy minds together into one oversized head, the two provide comprehensive guidance on both camera operation and creative visualization.
During the six hours spent in the company of other pupating shutterbugs, you'll learn how to control depth of field by adjusting the aperture, strategies for lighting an artful chupacabra sighting, how to compose a family portrait so that there’s not always a burning zeppelin in the background, how to avoid red eyes using alternative angles, and more.
Whether you're a seasoned sniper with your shuttered shooter or looking to better know a birthday gift, the Capturing True Emotion four-hour workshop can help get your camera-op chops in top shape. The two-hour photo safari (a $200 value) takes place after the morning session and allows students to put their shutter-speed savvy to good use around town under the tutelage of their new-found instructors.
