We just ran a few classes and workshops to complete the Winter season. No classes or workshops are currently scheduled since I am out on the Fine Art Show circuit through Spring & Summer, however 'The Building Blocks of Photography' course will return likely in late Fall. Be sure to email me to let me know if you'd like to be contacted when the new offerings are scheduled.
The Building Blocks of Photography
You have the equipment. You have the desire. All you need is the knowledge to release your creative potential so that you can make the move from 'taking pictures' to 'making photographs'. The first step to capturing memorable images is exactly that: 'The Capture'; that is the moment when you press the shutter release and capture that moment in time.
As a classically trained landscape photographer that has been capturing images for over 30 years, I believe that becoming a great photographer starts with putting the effort into your photographs before you take the shot - not afterward in a darkroom or on a computer. Therefore, to achieve great results, one must understand the fundamental basics of photography; in essence: The Building Blocks.
I have developed an intensive curriculum that focuses on these essentials rather than bombard you with an overload of technical mumbo jumbo and 'tips' that are soon forgotten, often before the class or workshop is over. Instead, the essential key ingredients of great photography: Composition, Lighting, Aperture, Shutter Speed and Exposure (the CLASSE approach) are thoroughly addressed through visual examples and in an engaging, easy-to-understand and interactive way.
Here is what has been said of Timm's 'Building Blocks of Photography' class
This course is for new photographers and amateurs who desire to have a much better understanding of their equipment, its settings and the techniques for crafting better photographs. Participants will need to have either a Digital SLR or a Film SLR camera (an SLR is the type of camera where you can remove the lens)
When will the class run?
The Building Blocks of Photography will be returning in late Fall of 2013.
What will I need to bring to class?
Although you will not be making any photographs in the class, its a good idea to bring your camera, a lens, and your instruction manual to help you find how to set certain functions discussed in class if you aren't familiar with them. Participants will be provided copies of the presentation in which to take notes, so bring a pen as well.
