Finding The Shot: The Art & Craft of Better Seeing / John Tunney - on Zoom and on location
Time & Location
Finding The Shot: The Art & Craft of Better Seeing with John Tunney Mondays, 5:30-7:30 pm starting March 22, 5 weeks $165/$180 A famous photographer once said , “If you want to take more interesting pictures, stand in front of more interesting stuff”. Well, the truth is that there’s lots of “interesting stuff” lying around if you know where and how to look. This class, based on the popular program John has given at the CLICK! Photography Conference, is about how to develop your photographer’s eye to see “interesting stuff” wherever you look and turn it into expressive images.
Working with landscapes and scenics, close-ups, still lifes and other styles, we’ll delve into topics such as composition and design, light and lighting, the use of depth of field, shutter speed and lenses as compositional tools, the art of “seeing” and expressiveness, plus editing techniques to opimize your images. We’ll put theory into practice with at least two outdoor shooting sessions at various locations around the Cape, plus weekly homework and image review sessions. We’ll also look at the work of photographers working in various genres and styles and examine how they turned “interesting stuff” into interesting pictures.
Open to anyone who has taken Intro to Photography or has similar experience and wants to pursue photography as a fine art, this class will help you take your photography to the next level and get you consistently creating higher quality images. Students should have a basic understanding of camera controls and how to adjust f-stops, shutter speed and ISO, plus a basic understanding of Lightroom’s Develop Module or equivalent software. Any camera is fine for this class, but you’ll get the most out of it with a DSLR or mirrorless camera with manual controls.
Classroom and review sessions will be held via Zoom. Outdoor sessions will follow appropriate guidelines, including use of masks.
