He will share techniques, photo equipment requirements, and materials used for achieving images like the ones below. Afterwards, you'll have the opportunity to create similar images safely outdoors on the Unique Photo property. 

    There will be three different staging areas that each participant will rotate through. This way, everyone will have an opportunity to photograph several different designs from different positions.  You will leave that evening with a body of work illustrating just how amazing photographing fire can look.

    You have a digital camera and you know that the images are going to be far superior to the ones captured by your point-and-shoot camera, but maybe you're not sure how that happens.  This class is for beginners to amateur photographers looking to gain a better understanding of the automated modes and features, as well as the manual control and capabilities, of your digital SLR or mirrorless camera.

    Get instruction on the importance of understanding the fundamentals (such as depth of field, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, metering, white balance, reading histograms, on camera flashes, lenses) and how they will affect your photos!

    In the second half of the class, the students will work with their cameras and apply what they have learned.  The buttons and settings will be much easier to manipulate and each student will have develop the ability to capture the images closer to their vision.

    *Please note that this class is NOT for point-and-shoot cameras.
