What you will learn in the Photography Class/Tour
EXPOSING YOUR PICTURES
We will teach you about White Balance, ISO, Aperture, and Shutter Speeds. We will review when, why, and how to shoot in aperture and shutter priority modes. We will cover shooting in manual mode along with manual exposure compensation. You will learn how to control your depth of field and background. If you are new to photography, we will teach you everything you need to know to get you out of auto mode. If you are more advanced, we will go over what you already have a grasp on (one on one) and teach you from there.
HOW TO CREATE DYNAMIC AWARD WINNING PHOTOGRAPHY
Learn all of the techniques of your instructor, who is a master at creating incredible images and winning awards doing it. You will learn all of her unique ways to create jaw-dropping photos.
We will teach you the difference between Matrix, Spot and Evaluative metering. We will discuss when to use them to your advantage and practice using them in the field.
AF-S, AF-C, AF-A, MF. You will learn what they are and when and why to use them to create sharp, crisp images.
CREATING DYNAMIC IMAGES
We will learn about Color, Composition, Angles, Texture, Backgrounds, Lines, Subject Matter, and what makes a dynamic image. Your instructor is an international award-winning photographer and will teach you everything she knows in this area.
After we learn what each setting does, we will review all the camera settings and help set your camera to your desired settings. Everyone has different preferences, but not everyone knows how to change settings and what the camera can do. You may want the highlight alert, image rotation upon review, release of the shutter without a card, AF assist beam, noise reduction level, and more.
We will discuss and practice taking your photographs to merge the post-processing of the photos to produce large-size panoramic pictures.
HDR (High Dynamic Range)
We will discuss and practice shooting in a high dynamic range where we take multiple exposures of the same image to merge the photos to get perfect exposure throughout the image.
NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY/LONG EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY/ MILKY WAY PHOTOGRAPHY.
We will also be doing night photography to create dramatic images. We will go over star trails, painting with light (bring your flashlight), and long exposures for things such as WATERFALLS. You may be tired at night, and it will be arranged that you can join the group at night or rest and relax after a long day of photography at the hotel. Your choice! Our staff members don’t stop working throughout the tour. (Except for sleep, of course)
HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN PHOTOGRAPHY.
We will have a group discussion and discuss one on one the opportunities to make money in photography by selling your images online or starting your own photography business. We will cover school portraiture, weddings, pets, sports, family portraiture, commercial, real estate, hospitality, accident scene, product liability photography, and more. We will review the start-up costs, potential profits, how to price your services and work, which labs to use for printing, working out of your home, how to set up your business, taxes, employees vs. independent contractors, and more! We have a wealth of knowledge in this area, and you can take advantage of our extensive experience.
