Simple Photography Magic

12:00p.m. to 2:00p.m.

Have you ever seen an amazing photograph and wondered how it was created? By using your camera’s basic settings and following a few simple rules, you can dramatically improve your photos to create wonderful works of art. In this hands-on workshop, we will learn why light is so important, the rule of thirds and three basic camera settings that will change everything. Class topics will include learning about exposure, focus, ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Students will be shown a demonstration of three different styles of cameras (Point & Shoot, DSLR & a Smart Phone) to learn how they can be adjusted to create better photos. We recommend that you bring your camera (all types welcome!) but are not required to be able to attend class. Join us for a fun and informational class that is easy to understand, and leave with the ability to add new energy and magic to your photos!

Bring one of the following:
Homemade Cookies (Prize to my favorite!)
Interesting Writing Instruments
Old Technology/Gadgets
Older Minolta Maxxum Camera Lenses
Random & Fun Surprise!

About the teacher, Ben Turney

Computer guy by day, photographer by night, Ben Turney likes to dabble in all things technical and artsy. Naturally, Ben is drawn to photography as photography is both extremely technical and can be wonderfully artistic. While his day job pays the bills, he is a semi-professional photographer who has been "bending light" for over 20 years making interesting and creative images that are more than just photos. Ben is new to the Trade School experience but loves the concept of small, informal & local teaching opportunities. He really wants to help people overcome some of the technical hurdles in photography by giving them a hands-on experience learning about their camera and how to manipulate it to make photo magic!
