Most people have some hesitation about photographing people, whether you’re a beginning photographer or someone who is comfortable with a camera. This course (for all levels of photographers) will strengthen your artistic style and your technical tool box as you make images of people you know … and don’t know. We’ll focus on how to use shutter speed, aperture (depth of field), composition, and natural and artificial lighting to best advantage. We’ll study the great “people” photographers of the past and present. We’ll also focus on how to capture personalities, and how to prepare for the “decisive moment” as people do the things they do that make us all so touchingly human. The class format will include photo expeditions, discussion of technique, review of master photographers’ work, and creative assignments (followed by friendly critique). You’ll come away with strong technical tools and a new-found appreciation of the power of people in photographs.
