Walk in the Footsteps of a Master Photographer

with Karen Keating

January 3rd - February 7th

Mondays 7:30pm-9:30pm

The first meeting is a discussion of Master Photographers covering early masters and current working photographers.  Students will receive guidelines and suggestions one week before the class start date.  The focus begins with student discussion of the “masters” signature content, quality of light and impact on the history of photography.  Each student chooses a photographer to shadow and steps into his or her content, composition and quality of light.  Weekly discussions center on the students’ images in the style of the chosen “master”.  The final class is a set of each student’s photos influenced by the master. More Info: Minimum age 18. 6 sessions.

All About the Light 

with Eliot Cohen

February 2nd- February 23rd

Wednesdays 10am-12pm

Natural light has many characteristics. It can illuminate, but also convey mood or feeling. Light can be beautiful but it can complicate what we are trying to express. Our class will be about using natural light to best advantage in our images. We will consider the light in the scene and how it is represented in our files. Student files can be shared in dropbox. New shooting or existing is appropriate. Students should have comfort with the Lightroom Classic Develop module. Suitable for intermediate or advanced students. More info: Minimum age 18. 4 sessions.
