ClassGraphic Have you ever wondered how a photographer made the ocean water look marble smooth, or streaked lights across an urban landscape? Be prepared to take your photographs from ordinary to extraordinary in this on-location workshop in Capitola Village and at the Capitola wharf. Add mystery and glamor to your photos as you explore new techniques that will allow you to produce incredible shots. Whether photographing landscapes or portraits, you’ll gain creative and technical skills to create truly unique photographs.

Techniques explored will include:
  • Blurring water and skies
  • Panning and zooming
  • Light painting
  • Creating light trails
Class will begin on campus at Cabrillo, take a one hour dinner break, then meet again in Capitola to begin our evening of on-location photography!
