Fine Art Digital Photography
It is often said that the best camera is the one you have with you - making great photographs is not about the cost of your camera; it's about your ability to visualize, compose, and capture a great photograph. Under the guidance of Lawrence Lazare, you will explore what makes a great fine art photograph, including lighting, shutter speed, and basic photo editing techniques.
PLEASE NOTE: This workshop does not include darkroom work. Please provide your own camera and removable memory card.
