    This series is for students that have a clear understanding of the exposure triangle and beginner concepts of composition. We will be covering more advanced techniques and compositional elements in an effort to help guide students toward developing their own unique style. Students will have assignments throughout that will be discussed in class along with a final project at the conclusion of the course.

    A series of 4 classes focusing on beginner composition techniques. It is best if students have a working knowledge of their camera including an understanding of the exposure triangle. Each class will include new instruction and homework designed to put into practice new knowledge. Images created will be reviewed in class for students to receive input and further guidance.

    Make sharp, well-lit photographs of plants, flowers, and small artifacts on-site for publication or printing. See a demonstration of photography of a small floral subject (outdoors if weather permits). Control the quality of light from an affordable compact strobe with a sog box, user-made reflectors, and other simple accessories. Enhance the image using Affinity Photo (applicable to Photoshop). Beginners are welcome, but intermediate- and advanced-level photographers with high end digital single lens reflex or mirrorless cameras will probably benefit most from this two-part course.
