Workshop: Improve Your Photography

$25.00 Payable at the MCC College Store

What You’ll Learn in This Workshop

BACK TO THE BASICS: This course will help you to improve your photography through building a foundation that is fundamental to its advancement. We all need to start with the basics or be reminded of them in order to grow. In order to improve, you never stop learning. Understand camera settings to achieve better photos.
EXPOSURE and LIGHTING: No matter how great the image is, without the proper exposure the full potential of that image will never be reached. This is the foundation of great images. Lighting is the director that guides the viewer where to look and defines the subject.
PURPOSE: You must preconceive and plan your photography in order to overcome and combat your limitations in order to achieve images that excel.
COMPOSITION: Composition is the element that separates the extraordinary from the ordinary. It complements the main subject yet sublimely guides the viewer throughout the image.

COVID-19 Precautions

Class attendees will need to adhere to mask wearing and social distancing while on campus. Class size is limited to 26.
