  • Now that you understand shutter speeds and f/stops from the Fundamentals class, it is time to concentrate on the creative side of photography.  During the #101 Fundamentals class only one of seven sessions was dedicated to the creative exploration of making an image.  This six-week class will spend each night and two all-day field trips to put into practice a thorough understanding of: the rule of thirds, the light isolate theory, the use of negative and positive space, leading lines, the use of repetitive shapes, patterns and textures as design elements.  Learn about the master photographers’ work and how they still influence photographers of today.  You will have the opportunity to explore the differences between color and monochrome (black & white) image making.  Learn how social, emotional and spiritual influences will enhance your vision.  This class will provide a foundation leading toward mastery of evaluating, designing and executing an outstanding composition using your camera.  Ansel Adams coined the phrase “previsualization” during which the photographer mentally pictures a shot before setting up the camera and tripod.  The field trips will inspire understanding and application of these principles.  Images from the field trips will critique in the classroom.  Each student will have seen and interpreted the same subject differently in the same location.  Celebrate and learn from each other … synergism.  If you are very meticulous, precise and orderly, you might struggle with composition and understanding what constitutes “art”.  This class is for you!  This class is well suited for both the right brain and the left brain learner.
