Full Moon Coastal Photography Workshop

125.00

This two hour workshop takes place during the full moon in Santa Barbara. This is an beginning-intermediate level class where you will be photographing long exposures of landscapes in full moon light; as well as playing around with long exposures and "painting with light" (seen right). This workshop will be a great chance for you to:

  • Practice working with shutter speed and long exposures.

  • Better understand how to properly use and adjust your ISO.

  • Focus your lens in low light conditions.

  • Create artistic and balanced composition for landscape imagery.

What you'll need: other than your camera and any lenses that you would like to use (I recommend something with a wider angle for landscape images), you'll need to bring a tripod, remote (wireless or cable), and flashlight.

Please let me know if you have any questions on where to purchase these things, how much you should be spending, and what is compatible with your camera. I am happy to help you find something suitable and affordable.

Black & White Workshop

from 0.00

All levels of experience welcome.

Photographing with black and white as your output in mind is a whole different ball game y’all! During this workshop, we will walk around downtown Santa Barbara in the Historic El Presidio area and Santa Barbara Courthouse. I want to teach you all the tips and tricks I have learned that make for powerful black and white images! You will learn:

  • What kind of lighting and subject matter make for impactful black and white images.

  • How to meter the light around you to expose correctly for black and white photography.

  • How to become a shadow seeker!

  • What contrast is all about and why it’s important, especially with black and white.

  • What the histogram on your camera is used for and how to insure that your images have accurate shadow and highlight detail for your desired output purposes.

  • How to shatter the myth that photographing during mid-day is “bad light”. No such thing! Light is always on your side. I’ll show you how.

This walk is reserved for small groups of 5-10 people. This workshop requires walking a few blocks around town so please be prepared for the activity level required to participate.
