Limited Capacity filling up

In this outdoor shooting demonstration class we will begin with a discussion about documentary photography and how it can be used when photographing families. From there we will talk about how composition plays such a strong part in documentary photography and how to use the compose and wait method of shooting which was developed by the world renowned National Geographic photographer, Sam Abell. We will also address how colors play a role in how a photo is viewed and how to use color theory to our advantage when photographing. From there I will demonstrate using the documentary approach with a family outdoors on the plantation grounds. The program will wrap up with attendees being able to photograph the family as well.

The class will include discussion, lots of opportunities for questions, a shooting demonstration, and attendee shooting.

Attendees should be comfortable shooting in manual. A 35mm lens or wider is recommended for documentary shooting.
