Online Learning


Dive deeper into your photographic journey in this third-level photography class. This class will explore Seeing Light, Metering and Advanced Exposure Value.

Designed for photographers who have taken Photography 101 and 201 or who have sufficient understanding of basic aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and who want to learn more about light and properly exposing for it.

In Photography 301, Brian will review and build upon his dashboard approach to setting up the camera so you are ready for the decisive moment. He will begin by asking you to start seeing light and looking at light. After a thorough overview “Light” and how it affects your images, this class will show you “How To” set your camera to see the Light, the way you see the light.

This is a Two-Part class. The first class will give you a broad foundation on how to see light and properly capture what you see. At the end of the first class, you will be given a homework assignment and you will have two weeks to complete the assignment and than join your classmates virtually for a critique and discussion about the images you took.
