Are you new to Digital photography? Own a Digital Camera but are unsure how to get the results you desire? Kelly Abdoney can enlighten you on how to achieve quality images! Participants will complete the workshop with three printed images of their own work.
Within this course we will be covering the basics of how to use a digital camera on a manual setting to achieve images of highest quality and strong composition. Students will be given the opportunity to submerge themselves in the craft of digital photography by learning a hands-on approach to composing, lighting and manually using all the settings on their cameras whilst shooting against the backdrop of the Center’s beautiful location in Tyler Park. Wednesday’s class time is scheduled to start as 6:30 pm to allow students the opportunity to utilize late afternoon/evening light.
Assigned briefs will be given so that each participant can fully explore the huge genre of color and black and white photography and learn to achieve the style and professionalism of photography they want from their work. At the end of this intensive course students will have group discussions about their work and what they feel they have learned and also receive an introduction to Photoshop and Lightroom work flow. Students will have access to an Epson printer and will be able to print three images of there own to take home.
