Tom Glassman is a fine art photographer with a passion for pushing the boundaries of image-taking. He is part of Ashland Art Center’s Artists Services LLC, as a giclee printer. He knows the workings of cameras (and fine art printing), inside and out, and captures amazing images of ordinary scenes that are made extraordinary by his knowledge of how a camera functions, including its depth of field and exposure values. He does not use Photoshop except minimally, to do minor adjustments. He has many fabulous stories about his various images. Tom is excited to share his philosophy of photography and the knowledge he’s gained from years of experience. His workshop, Photography A to Z will give you many wonderful details and tips for how to use your camera and make amazing photographs.
Photography A to Z ~ Whom it’s right for:
Beginning photographers who need to learn the basics and fundamentals so they can begin to practice and understand how to use the different controls on their camera to get the kind of shots they want to get. They will also learn how to review their images (and the shooting information data) so they can understand why the image looks the way it does, what they did correctly, and how they could make it better next time.
Intermediate photographers who need to review the basics and fundamentals so they can look at a scene for a potential image and know what lens and settings to use, where to focus, and the best way to frame the shot for the best composition.
Advanced photographers who might appreciate a quick review of the basics and fundamentals (that they may not have thought about in years) so they can get a good “creative kick in the pants” and get back to having fun with the camera.
There are also a gazillion little settings you can use (that the instruction manuals don’t talk about) to help you get the most out of your mental approach to photography, your photography technique, your camera, your camera’s sensor, your lens, your computer, and your image editing software.
Anyone who signs up for this course should be able to go forth with a little more knowledge, a little more confidence, or a little more commitment to help take them to the net level.
And as an added bonus, this course should give anyone enough of a running start to go back and read the instruction manual and finally understand it.
