All about Lenses – The Cameras best friends

(explore Lenses, Filters, Lens Shades, and more)

Dive deeper into your photographic journey in this forth-level photography class.

This class will explore Lenses, Filters, Lens Shades, and more.

Designed for photographers who have taken Photography 101, 201 or who have sufficient understanding of basic aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings and who want to learn more about lenses, filters and lens shades.

In Photography 401, Brian will begin this class with an in-depth look at lenses and will explain the different types of filters and lens shades available.

This class will leave you with a better understanding of “how to” choose the best lens for any photographic activity and get you to think about why a polarizer is the best accessory to have in your bag and when you need a neutral density filter and a lens shade.

This is a Two-Part class. The first class will give you a broad foundation lenses, filters and shades. 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 join your classmates virtually for a critique and discussion about the images you took.

Class1- will feature a 2-hour lecture followed by 30 minutes

Class2- Will feature a 2-hour critique followed by 30 minutes of live Q&A with the instructor. We will spend 5 minutes critiquing each persons work and if times permits will address further questions at the end of the evening.
