Creative Fundamentals II – Advanced Techniques

Our most popular photography workshop, Creative Fundamentals was designed to give you a broad exploration of all the basic photographic principles. We’ve run this for 13 years and keep getting asked to run “Part 2.”

Advanced Lighting and Motion

Advanced Exposure Techniques – we look at different ways to achieve lighting effects incorporating starbursts, motion, and sunsets.

Creative Fundamentals II – Advanced Techniques is designed to take you further. Created to refresh the basics and guide you to more advanced photo taking scenarios, we begin where Creative Fundamentals left off.

Next Date Available:
May 3 (2-9pm), 4 (2-9pm), 7 (6-9pm), 2014.
We run this course from bright midday light into the creative evening light.
Also available as a Custom Course anytime.

Motion photography

Exploring techniques of motion with and without rigs to support creative blur in your photos.

What you will learn
We cover:

  • a quick review of your camera
  • advanced exposure details for tricky lighting scenarios
  • advanced depth of field exercises to help you maximize creativity
  • exploring ideas of composition beyond “Rule of Thirds”
  • creating props to include active motion in your pictures
  • and MORE!

Creative Fundamentals II – Advanced Techniques includes two practical sessions in different locations and a critique applicable to experiments to help your photography grow.

photo exposure variations

Exploring possibilities of different exposures using manual exposure mode and extra lighting.

You must be comfortable shooting in manual exposure mode (while getting reasonable exposures!) and have an understanding of theory about depth of field, focus, composition and perspective.

While we will do a quick review as we advance, you will get most from this course with a base of knowledge.

We encourage you to have completed Creative Fundamentals (or equivalent) as a group or as a Custom Course.
