They'll cover everything from technical recommendations and camera settings to creative post processing techniques. Equipped with this new knowledge, you can capture and make your favorite city shine.

  • CS: Personal Vision and Macro Photography with Ron Tarver

    Class Code: UUUCS8353

  • CS: The Art of Black and White Photography with Thibault Roland (Sony)

    Class Code: UUUCS8358

    @ Unique Photo PHILLY, PA

    Colors are an essential part of the world. The infinite shades of blues in the sky and the ocean, the delicate greens of vegetation in the Spring time, the gold and reds of foliage in Fall... But what happens when these colors are removed? Suddenly we step away from reality and enter an unfamiliar world where patterns, geometrical shapes and contrasts emerge stronger.

    During this lecture, Sony Artisan of Imagery Thibault Roland will discuss Black and White Photography. How to create and use leading lines, textures, and light in order to build dynamic and original photographs. He will illustrate how important it is to visualize and build an image even before pressing the shutter button, and how your overall photography work (including color) can benefit from the rigorous process of creating in B&W.

He'll discuss some of the options to consider even before pressing the shutter trigger, as well as the equipment needed to capture these unique looking images. You'll learn the different ways to obtain the infrared effect, and what options are available for you to shoot in infrared.

  • CS: Long Exposure Photography with Thibault Roland (Sony)

    Class Code: UUUCS8362

    @ Unique Photo PHILLY, PA

    In most people’s mind photography has to be truthful to reality. It has to depict a scene, and atmosphere, and event accurately. But it's so much more than a simple tool to document our lives… It's also a way to express ourselves, our point of view, to share our messages. It's art that can be abstract and minimalistic. It allows us to change what we see based on our emotions and intent.

    Long exposure photography embraces that, transforming reality into a dialogue. By stretching the time used to capture a single image, the photographer includes movement in their art: water becomes smooth, clouds create long silky streaks, trees blur out in the wind... the effects are endless. Long exposure is a different mindset. One that comes from within and uses what is out there in order to produce unique and breathtaking images. Images that go beyond documenting and bridge into the Fine Arts.

    In this technical lecture, Sony Artisan of Imagery Thibault Roland will introduce long exposure and discuss the equipment needed to shoot with this technique. By the end, you will have a checklist of the different steps to follow, as well as some tips and tricks.

    "My interest in taking the photographs that I do is typically guided by light and fueled by a true and genuine love for these spaces, people, machines, or whatever else you may find as a subject in one of my pieces. Similarly, what I photograph on the streets of Philadelphia and elsewhere is truly a body of work piloted by an adoration for the city and the microcosms of different cultural staples within it that make it what it is. This endless pursuit to encompass all of the different Philadelphias that exist and the people and the things that they do that prop those worlds up is the bulk of my portfolio."
