Advanced Photography - Hands-On Workshop

Do you have a basic understanding of ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speed in Manual Mode but need practice to put your understanding to use? Have you gone beyond the Auto setting but need to better understand the histogram, exposure and focus modes? Do you want to understand how to use external flash? These sessions are designed to get you practice shooting - indoors and, weather permitting, outside while helping you understand what is going on in the camera. Four advanced topics will be covered. 1) Perfect Portraits – how to meter faces exactly, and how to set white balance perfectly for any light. We’ll also learn how to read a histogram and when you should absolutely use it. We’ll also review the exposure and autofocus modes plus the auto focus AREA modes. 2) How to take pictures at blue hour – get spectacular results by knowing when and how to shoot the city in evening light – we’ll go outside for this one at the 1st evening with good weather. 3) How to shoot Film Noir – “A style marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace”. Often called “low-key” because of sharp dark shadows. We can use the lights in class and I’ll also show you how to do this with a speedlight. The trick is to set the stage and get the metering right. This is where you learn to think in black and white. .4 & 5) Understanding Flash – Your flash has it’s own metering system (besides the one in your camera). Learn how to use it to your best advantage. We’ll cover simple fill, how to match indoor with outdoor lighting simultaneously, the effect of varying the ISO, techniques for using a speedlight (and why you should own one). You will need to bring a digital SLR to class (please bring your manual too). A speed light is needed for session on flash. If you have a Nikon, you can use mine. I’ll also show you where and how to buy them at a discount. Bring all your questions too.

Date: Monday April 24th - May 22nd Time: 6:15-8:45pm Fee: $99.00

Prerequisites: DSLR or Mirrorless manual control digital camera with flash, and either Basic Photography II or comprehensive understanding of Exposure (f/ , speed, ISO).

NO experience needed.” A resident of Winchester for over 35 years, Gail graduated from Mount Holyoke and BC. She is a house painter, financial manager at the Sons of Italy, a lecturer on the culture and wildlife of Tanzania through LaRoccaAfrica. com, runs a nonprofit LifeWaterAfrica.com and serves on the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors.
