Photography II: Understanding Photographic Composition – Ages 14 through Adult

Starting DateFebruary 8, 2018

Ending DateMarch 1, 2018


Event Description

This class offers a step beyond Basic Photography. It will push the students’ boundaries and bring confidence to their work, by enhancing their knowledge of photographic skills and draw them towards another level of photography. Students interested in this class must have a basic understanding of the matrix of shutter speed, aperture, and I.S.O. to successfully navigate within the menu of their camera, and make adjustments to the settings with relative ease to achieve a desired exposure.

This class will give students a better understanding of what their camera has to offer, using in-camera menu items to help them create a better photograph. Among other topics, the class will address histograms and their role in improving exposure, lens construction and development, and include discussions about the different lenses available and their specific uses. If weather permits, an evening shoot will be planned along Hudson’s main street to photograph in challenging low light and night conditions.

Four Thursdays
