#1002 Sports Photography Master Class

Instructor(s): Bryce Denison

Tuition: $600.00

This six-week nine-session class provides both classroom instruction and at least three field trips (perhaps more). Students will photograph motor sport racing at Waterford Hills, Professional baseball at a local park and skateboarding at a state-of-the-art local cement rink. Students will learn to use ‘long’ lenses, vibration reduction (or image stabilization) and noise reduction in their digital files and how much shutter speed it takes to freeze action. Learn how to use back button focusing, burst mode, proper use of high ISOs and then apply noise reduction to your image, and when to press the shutter for that ‘decisive moment’ to create dynamic sharp well exposed photos of the subject even under low light levels. Students will learn how to make money in the competitive field of event photography, and to capture, print, publish and market their work from a free web page. Event photography traverses from shooting team photographs at the local little league football, baseball, basketball, soccer leagues to portraits of couples at a local bar/nightclub. The class will culminate in the development of sports portfolio of their best work. The portfolio may be print form or virtual portfolio slide show set to music to play on their web site.
