Using Your External Flash ($45)

Nothing seems to intimidate students quite like flash. They try to make sense of it by comparing its functions to what they know about their cameras, but flash makes far more sense once you realize that it requires an altogether different set of principles to master it. As long as you understand that you aren’t so much capturing light, but rather you are producing it, you'll find that working with an external flash isn't quite so rough. This seminar walks you through the theory and ensures that you understand not only the proper uses for your flash, but all of its mysterious functions as well.

Portraiture
($45)

This introductory seminar serves as a basic primer on how to approach shooting human subjects in both formal and informal settings. Learn the several basic “shots” involved in portraiture, including how the success of each type of shot depends on a different set of decisions that you as a photographer will have to make. We want you to approach portraiture with a logical sense of confidence, so that your choices for lighting, positioning, and mood don’t interfere with one another, and the resulting image is the very best of what you intend.
