Understanding Natural And Artificial Light, Seeing the Light

A) Natural light and understanding how it effects our images

Attendees should bring to class their camera, laptop and about 25 images for discussion or questions - pertaining to light and shadow, their exposure.

The most popular question is, why don't my images look like how I saw them? Understanding light and exposure has much to do with the answer. This workshop can be intense. Once you understand the fundamentals you will get better images.

Prepare to shoot on location with attention to light,  how to see the light when preparing to make an exposure.  We will look at the images created from location, create an approach to style - and work with computers.

B) Processing Your Images

We work on your present workflow now and improve on what you are doing with techniques we use at the studio to make processing easier and faster, most of the time - depending on the image.

Everyone thinks because images are digital they will come out of the camera great... To get images "like you saw them," your images need to be processed. We go over exposure, light and shadow, and then what to do with you images once you have them so prints or digital files look like what you want them to be.

RECAP: We will have class, shoot on location, process the images created on location, create an approach to style and work with computers.

Using Your Camera to Tell Stories...

Photography in general alludes to fun and excitement and makes one very passionate about image makeing. Photography also brings one to many places both in your minds eye and in the actual photograph. We travel to exotic places with the idea in mind to create equally exotic Photographs. We are travelers, we are adventure seekers and we want to see and do more to capture it through our cameras.

However if we don't know how to do it photography well,  all that excitement dies fast when our Photographs don't look like what we felt and saw  at the time vs when we look at them on our monitors. Good Photography creates a feeling, and better photography get us excited. The old cliché that;

"A picture is worth a thousand Words!"

It's true... I would like to think and hope that some images are worth more words and some Photographs do all the talking. Wouldn't you like to be the Creator? Story Teller of your journey or adventure?  Wouldn't you like to create pictures that speak to your viewing audience?

Take the first step with us at Stanwycks Photography |  Photo Skills - and we will get you on that path today. We will help you understand photography and it's language so much better. You will see!
