The Seeing, Not the Taking
It's one thing to capture a photo. But to funnel your artistic vision-the accumulation of your inner-thoughts, emotions and knowledge-into a unique photographic moment is a whole new ballgame. This is where this course steps in. Through creative use of camera controls, you'll learn "why" (instead of "how") to taking a photo. Class meets two Sundays: October 12th and 18th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
