The second day we go to prime locations we think inspire photography creatively and implement different techniques.
We discuss what motivates us as Image Makers and photographers, including the amateur Photographer to the Experienced shooter.
Classes first, and then we go into the field and apply our techniques. What inspires us to capture, how to capture the spontaneity we feel as something motivates us to shoot - "without losing the shot."
We discuss motivations, several rules of composition, color, Black and white, gear, tripods, lenses, digital darkroom must haves, and the pros and cons of too much or too little with regards to gear and with the computer.

Are we snapping photos or creating images? With Instagram and Facebook inherently everyone is a kind of journalist - yet many an image is a snapshot.
The difference however in a good image maker and a snapshot maker is our methodology and care we take to understand the image and the process to create a fine image and the equipment we use.
