Session Information

Don't Shutter Away from that DSLR
At first glance, photography seems rather simple. Point, shoot, develop, Pulitzer Prize. Right? What many of us find out though (myself include) is that it's not that easy. Something just seems wrong with each photo, there are too many buttons, I don't know what these terms mean, post-processing seems difficult and unusable, etc. 

Through this seminar, we will talk about the basics of photography regarding terminology, functions, and best practices through the lens (hehe) of my experiences in the parks and recreation industry. We will talk about what is an ideal photo composition, how to take photos in various settings you might encounter as a photographer, post-processing tools and techniques, and some of the odd lessons I have learned.
