Shooting 208: Storymaking

What makes a good story anyway? We know one when we hear one. But how do we see a compelling story in a photograph? What elements make a narrative image powerful? How can our shooting and processing lend to the story we aim to tell? In this course we will plan and build powerful narrative images.  We will dissect images for their story elements, consider what stories you are driven to tell and learn how to intentionally construct strong narrative images before, while and after you press the shutter.

S101_FirstSteps

Shooting 101: First Steps with a DSLR

First Steps with a DSLR is a 3 week beginner photography workshop designed to help new photographers move beyond auto mode and get the most out of their DSLRs. Students will learn basic concepts of composition and how to use natural light to their advantage. They will transition from shooting on the camera’s auto mode and simply pointing and clicking to shooting in semi-automatic modes (program mode, aperture priority mode, and shutter priority mode) and being a mindful photographer. Topics such as interacting with subjects, capturing the details, storytelling, and gaining inspiration will be covered. Students will gain knowledge and grow as photographers in a supportive and inspiring environment. It’s a great fit for anyone who just got a new camera, moms who want to learn to take better pictures of their children, or anyone getting started in photography.
