Hilton Garden Inn - Yakima, WA

Photography 101 class description:
This class introduces you to photography fundamentals, composition, and the use of light. We will help you understand your basic camera function and camera settings (like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO). This class is for the beginner photographer with an SLR camera. It's perfect for anyone who has a love for photography and is ready to take their skill to the next level. If you've ever said, "I have a nice camera, but I don't know how to use it!" THIS is the class for you!

Photography 102 class description:
This class is an extension of photography 101. It will give you even more time to process and solidify some basic camera functions and photography topics. This class also touches on workflow, posing, and client interaction. It is for the beginner to intermediate photographer. During this class we will have the opportunity to photograph a live model, talk about our exact lighting and camera settings, and edit a photo together in Lightroom. We will also do live demonstrations of client interaction and posing.

Advanced Lighting class description:
You've asked, so here it is! A unique class solely devoted to lighting options and techniques. We will cover everything from natural light, to off camera flash setups, studio lighting, and more. Learn specific tips and tricks for lighting in different scenarios while watching live examples and demonstrations that you can put to use in the field. This class is for the intermediate to advanced photographer. We will expect that you have a good grasp on camera settings and are looking to expand your lighting knowledge.

What to expect: A casual, creative atmosphere of photography discussion.  We will provide notes, refreshments and sweet giveaways.  All you need to bring is your camera! These classes are geared more towards those interested in photographing people. Everyone will benefit  from the classes if they're looking to learn their camera settings, but we talk a lot about how to efficiently photograph and interact with your subjects.
