You and Your Camera: The Mastroianni Workshop--Condensed

Sunday, March 28, 2010

This condensed one day workshop is designed for the curious, aspiring pro, or artist with a camera interested in learning the how-to, what-for, and why's of photography.


How does this thing work?

Before we go snapping away, we're going to learn the nuts & bolts of making photographs.

First, we're going to turn the dial from "P" to "M" and learn how to use the meter, understand the relationship between aperture and shutter speed, and how ISO relates to all of that.

Then we're going to try to make sense of focal lengths, perspective, and depth of field, and how those choices can change the look and feel of your photographs.

And of course, we're going learn how to use flash so it doesn't suck.

Let's make pictures

Snapshots are fine, but beautiful photographs are made, not simply taken, you have to understand how to see stuff the way your camera sees it. We will explore the aesthetics and styles of photography through shooting everyday subjects, from each other to the ground at our feet and the clouds in the sky.

What do I do with all of these images?

We'll touch on the digital darkroom and how to make the most of your images after you've downloaded them. (A separate class looking at digital workflow will be available to current participants in this class.)

When and where?

The workshop will be held from noon until 3PM on Sunday March 28, 2010, at Mastroianni Photography Studio and Gallery in the Tremont neighborhood, 2688 W. 14th St, Cleveland OH 44113

What do I need?

A digital SLR (single lens reflex with interchangeable lenses); you will need to be familiar with the controls on your camera in order to adjust the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, as different makes and models vary. (Please note: cameras vary quite a bit from model to model, please familiarize yourself with the owner's manual and controls BEFORE coming to class.) If you have an external flash, bring it.


Cost of the workshop is $95 per person.
