Lesson Details

Photography

Levels Taught:
Beginner
I have taken various courses in photography and film in college, but nothing has been more instructional to my heart like my own imaginative experimentation. I teach the basics of frame and composition, using focus, depth of field, and other fundamentals that apply to basic photography. Having made several short films, I can add some basic teaching on the artistic side of motion picture making for those who are experimenting in beginning film-making. I will not be teaching digital film-making. You must have your own equipment and be familiar with the operation of your equipment.
