Students should come to class with a solid understanding of the exposure triangle and the appropriate use of shutter speed, aperture and ISO to create images. This class is for students to begin to create images with compositional rules in mind to maximize the aesthetic strength of their images. Classes will consist of a daily topic which students will then put in to practice in an out-of-class assignment that will be reviewed in the following class. This class is preparation for “Intermediate Photography.”
Students should have a device that allows them to connect to Zoom, in order to participate in the group lessons and discussions. In addition, DSLR or mirrorless cameras (or any point and shoot camera that can adjust shutter speed, aperture & ISO) are recommended for this course. However, since this program has a focus on composition more than the functionality of DSLR or mirrorless cameras, phone camera users could still benefit from this course.
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:
Thom Williams is a photographic artist based out of the Troy, NY area. After picking up a camera in elementary school during the age of film, he continued his creative journey at SUNY Oswego, graduating with a BFA degree in photography. Being a full-time commercial/fine art photographer as well as teaching an extensive list of classes keeps him completely in his element of constant exploration and immersion in the art form he loves so much. Although he has taken the past year off from gallery shows to focus more on instructing at several art centers, he is looking forward to bringing a fresh new look to his offerings in the coming year. He believes that there is nothing better than helping someone find their artistic voice — and frankly many times you learn a lot about yourself in the process.
