They Only Make That Shot Once! Capturing Great Action Portraits

Join professional photographer and owner of B. Scott Photography for a morning of high-quality instruction. Basically, cameras in auto modes make average images. We want to teach people to become comfortable with exposure settings so they can make more creative images and give them some rules of thumb to improve. We will cover the essentials of good exposure -- shutter speed, ISO, and aperture -- as the foundations to making great photographs. We will also discuss metering choices (spot, center weighted, matrix) photographers use to create images with maximum impact. Finally we will look at lighting (back vs direct) and shade, and discuss anticipating impactful moments, as ways to take your photography to the next level. Students should have a basic understanding of their camera equipment including being able to put it into manual mode and adjust shutter speed, ISO, and aperture.
