Current class offerings include:
Fundamentals of Exposure
With Amy Bader
Want to know and really understand how you camera works and sets exposure? Join us as we discuss how your cameras “sees” light and the elusive exposure triangle (ISO, aperture and shutter speed). Amy takes an intuitive approach to teaching these technical skills that will make your light bulb go off when it comes to setting your camera. It isn’t too hard — You CAN do IT!
This course is geared for individuals with a camera capable of manual settings (including mirror-less cameras and DSLRs), please bring camera to class.
WORKSHOP on Jan 27th, 7-9pm
More than Snapshots
With Amy Bader and Fara Lippincott
Looking to capture something besides your 7-year-old making that beaver face, again? Want a family album that isn’t just the family vacation and shots of everyone smushed together when you were all dressed up for grandma’s 80th birthday party?
Then join two of State College’s experienced child and family photographers for 4 weeks of tips and tricks and learn to see, and capture, your family in a whole new light.
These one-hour classes will discuss and provide examples of new ideas for capturing your family and children: new settings to consider, ideas on composition and lighting, and ways to document real moments and memories beautifully.
This course is open to photographers of all skill levels and with any type of equipment — film camera, point-and-shoot, dSLR or iPhone. However, please be familiar with your equipment, as the course will focus on inspiration and concepts, rather than strictly technical skills. Small assignments will be given, and avenues for sharing with classmates on-line will be provided.
NEXT SESSION Feb 3 & 17th, 7-9pm
Learning to See
Photography as Meditation
With Amy Bader
It can be so easy to get sucked into the endless votex of to-dos. We all need to slow down. In this course, learn to use photography as a meditative tool. Each day contains some kind of beauty, even days spent home with sick children. Learn to take your camera and find that moment of beauty. Along with seeking beauty comes the opportunity to practice gratitude for those simple, small moments.
Over the course of four weeks you will be provided with themes to explore and prompts for projects. We will have an on-line venue for classmates to share and provide support and feedback. As winter wanes and we look toward spring, join me for a month of seeing and finding gratitude in the everyday.
This course is open to photographers of all skill levels and with any type of equipment. While certain technical concepts may be touched upon, the course is primarily focused on the regular practice of photography, therefore it would be best to have a basic familiarity with your equipment.
NEXT SESSION March 3 & 17, 7-8:30pm
Fundamentals of Editing
With Amy Bader
Ready to start adding another layer to your photography skills? Then this is the workshop for you. We will explore a variety of aspects of post-processing — from white balance and exposure to contrast and color balance. This workshop is geared for photographers using editing software typically provided by their camera manufacturer, or others such as Lightroom, iPhoto, ACR, and PicMonkey. This is not a Photoshop or Photoshop Elements course, although concepts do apply. We will walk through an entire edit, from beginning to end, as well as discussing common corrections and conversion to black and white or monotone. Students are welcome to bring laptops with their software to follow along or ask questions.
