Street Photography Class - Alton Square Mall in Alton Illinois - 1:30 pm - 3 hours
People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to ‘see’ interesting detail is a practiced skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer’s eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

Portraiture Photography With Natural & Artificial Lighting - Art Hill at the St. Louis Art Museum - 9am - 2 hours
Natural lighting makes for some truly amazing portraits...but so does studio styled lighting!
So why not learn to mix both for some STUNNING photos!?
This course will take a look at some basics of lighting and how to use an off camera speedlight to take better portraits outdoors.

Portraiture Photography with Natural Lighting - Art Hill at the St. Louis Art Museum - 9am - 2 hours
Nothing looks as good as a naturally lit portrait in a outdoor setting! But becoming proficient at handling uncontrollable lighting conditions is difficult without some solid direction.

This course will help you understand the basics of lighting and how they can be applied in "uncontrollable" settings. We will take a look at everything from backlighting and camera settings to basic posing and location scouting for the absolute best photos!

Very informative. I've read how to do long exposure photography but never went out and did it myself. Was fun to do it in the company of others and with an expert teacher.
