Are you ready to take dramatic, professional-looking photos of your family, friends and the world around you? It all starts with seeing the light! Light is at the essence of photography, and knowing how light behaves and how to manage it is the critical first step to great photographs. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting out in photography or have years of experience - this workshop will give you knowledge and tools to transform your photo skills to make extraordinary images! Perfect for anyone doing landscape, portrait or travel photography.
Class will begin on campus for an introduction to photography techniques, then travel to your off- campus location to put your new skills into practice! Directions will be given during the on-campus portion.

Your materials fee covers a thumb drive which includes topic summaries, photo exercises and location checklists.
