Presented by Tony Rizzuto
Why? You know the difference between a shutter speed of 1/60th and 1/6th. When you think of the numbers 2.8, 4.0, 5.6 or 22 you immediately think of the word “aperture.” You no longer have to google the acronym ISO to understand what it means. All of this means that you understand the basics of photography, and are ready to ramp it up a notch. This workshop will do exactly that, while also allowing you to explore the beauty of western Montana. You will revel in views of the jagged Mission Mountains from Ninepipes Wildlife Refuge, cascading waters of Kootenai Creek, rustic charm of Garnet Ghost Town, and the historic western town of Philipsburg with its colorful downtown and famous candy store.
What? This weeklong course helps you master exposure and teaches you to see more creatively. In a wide spectrum of shooting scenarios, Tony teaches you:
Low-light and night photography
Macro photography techniques and equipment
Zone System of Exposure
How to achieve more creative compositions
How to design great images vs. simply capturing a scene
Tony’s humorous and easygoing nature makes for a comfortable learning environment. He leads group critiques that further your growth by offering a window into the thought process and keen eye of a professional photographer. Seeing the images created by your classmates, and hearing their input on the strengths and weaknesses of your photographs also helps to embed the lessons learned throughout the week.
