Photography Workshop

I've had so many people ask me how to use their camera or how to do specific types of shots, so I've been considering doing workshops--beginner and advanced. These workshops would be in the off-season once I'm caught up.

The beginner workshop would teach you what every button on your camera does, and what the purpose of each one is. The advanced one would teach you how to take these of the features and shoot specific types of shots.

The instruction would be tailored to the attendees and their cameras. There is no minimum camera requirement since I know you don't need a high dollar SLR to shoot good photos. I'll show you how to get the most out of whatever you own, whether it's a $50 point and shoot, or a $4000 SLR rig with pro glass.

Classes would be small to allow a lot of one-on-one time, and the beginner class would be more classroom and experimentation in that environment, while the advanced would be more in the field.

I'm not sure about costs yet since I don't know the expenses yet, but my target was to make it around $50 per person for 2-3hrs.

Thoughts? Anyone interested in this?

Wow, I didn't expect so many responses. I know Jeremy's wife from the Fiero Factory is interested, and so is Mrs. NiTez, so that would be 5 already.

Who's interested in the beginner class, and who's interested in the advanced class so I can get a count of each?

Well I can tell you me and Brittany would love to take the beginner course. I can take some good pics but only using automatic settings. I have tried other settings but usually not as good. So I'm game!

Sounds excellent. Put me down too for an itermediate/advanced level. Use infrared cameras all the time, but 'visible' has a few more buttons that I'd like to learn.

If you're already familiar with your shutter priority, aperture priority, ISO settings, and shooting fully manually, then you're ready for advanced.

I haven't used infrared much, so do you end up using the same exposure controls for shutter, aperture, and ISO?

Yep. Working with her that one day and meeting others that would like the same thing is what inspired the idea for a class.

I'd take the beginner's class. I've always been amazed with how you are able to manually set your equipment up to take high quality shots no matter what the light, atmosphere, and action is happening at that particular time.

The introductory class would introduce you to the controls that make this possible. And then the advanced class would go into how to use these controls for various situations.

Probably in the 0.7-0.9um or 1-3um. Both of those still depend on reflected light. I'm a little further out in the EM spectrum from the visible (0.3-0.7um).

Mostly 3-5, & 8-12um with fixed apertures (F/#'s). Shutter equates to integration time, and ISO ~ equals quantum efficiency. So a different set of terminology and things to consider when snapping an image.
