Course Description:  Advanced Photography will focus more on the surrounding aspects that the photographer can control to get the outcome they want. This class will also focus more in-depth on using light to paint with and create with, moonlight lighting, and more. There will be a greater focus on night photography, the use of fireworks in photography, steel wool setups, and many more artistic and business-related ideas. This class will include some nighttime locations to meet up for further opportunities to practice with each student’s cameras. This class will include scavenger hunts around the valley and further if students want to explore even more! This advanced class will include classroom days we all load up in my vehicle to go take photos locally where we will return by the end of class. Proof of full coverage insurance can be provided if requested.
