April 6, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT$85
This 4 session class will help beginners learn the basic functions of their camera as well as the basis of ALL photography: the exposure triangle. Students will, through class instruction and a series of homework assignments, begin to master the use of: shutter speed, aperture and ISO to take complete control of image creation.
Students should have a device that allows them to connect to Zoom, in order to participate in the group lessons and discussions. This course is designed for people who have DSLR or mirrorless cameras, or any point and shoot camera that can adjust shutter speed, aperture & ISO. Phone cameras are not recommended for this course.

Whether a gesture, expression, or angle of architecture, Thom is inspired by capturing images not otherwise seen of ordinary moments that can have profound reflective meaning for the viewer. As an artist, he is interested in experimenting digitally with images and more recently in presenting images in a unique multidimensional way.
His fashion editorials have been published in Saratoga Living, The Muse and Tattoo Envy Magazine, among others. Thom’s work can be viewed on TM Williams Photography through Facebook or Instagram.
Teaching at multiple art centers for the past 3 years in person and virtually beginning in 2020, he has found an avenue to share his passion and foster growth for others interested in photography.
