PHOTO FUNDAMENTALS WITH GREG COHEN
Develop a fluent understanding of camera, light and subject

This course is your introduction to the skills you need to successfully shoot powerful images in any situation. Students will learn all the controls and functions on their cameras, including basic camera operation (f-stop, shutter speed & ISO), photographic fundamentals and how to produce an intended image. We’ll discuss composition, focus, texture and tone among other stylistic choices.

  • Utilize the technical aspects of the camera to embrace your unique perspective.
  • Read light and manipulate quality, quantity, and direction with reflectors, diffusion and strobes.
  • Work with your subject: gaining access, giving direction and respecting boundaries.
