“Is this a digital or film course?” It is a photography course – about creating better photos. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Most participants bring digital cameras. Some choose film. Some bring both! No “point and shoot” cameras please.
Course Instructor: Harry Nowell is a photographer providing editorial, commercial and stock photography to clientsfor almost 20 years.
Participant Requirements: Students are required to bring a 35 mm SLR camera with a manual setting option – no point and shoot, please. Also, students should bring lens(es) that offer some wide angle (< 50 mm) and telephoto (>70 mm) capability. A classic and very useful lens for hockey is the 70-200mm f2.8 zoom – available for rent in Ottawa. Lenses with big apertures are beneficial. Relatively modern cameras offer options that will be useful! This course is designed for people with base skills such as finding exposure in manual mode.
Space is limited! A $125 deposit or a purchase order is required to reserve your spot or you can choose to pay the full $325 now.
