This year, flights to Okinawa over Golden Week have become extremely expensive. In order to keep the cost of the Light Painting Workshop with Trevor Williams as low as promised we are going to have reschedule to June or July. New dates should be announced shortly. Sorry to all those who were counting down the days, but it will happen!

Photography Fundamentals Workshop

April 27 & 28 2013 10AM to 6PM

Class Size: Max 4   Location: Ishikawa, Uruma City, Okinawa
Instructor: Chris Willson

Price: US$250

Progress beyond the camera’s green automatic mode. Take better photographs of your friends and family rather than point, shoot and hope for the best.

This is a fun workshop rather than a lecture. As we cover new topics we will be taking photographs, reviewing the images, and discussing the results.  You’ll be learning by practicing each new skill. Don’t be the person with all the gear, and no idea.

Class outline.

Equipment – The anatomy of cameras, lenses, memory cards, filters and tripods. Learn what gear you need, and what will help you improve.

Exposure – Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, Camera Modes, Metering. Take control of image brightness and depth of field, to create the images you want.

Composition – Angles, Repetition, Rules, Lines, Simplicity.  Whether you’re a sculptor, a painter or a photographer there are some artistic rules that work.

Data Management – Sorting, storing and protecting your images. Make sure those memories are safe for a lifetime.
