Digital Photography

Class Description: In eight weeks you will learn specifics of how to use your DSLR outside of AUTO mode & utilize features you may not even realize are in there. Getting comfortable in Manual Mode & taking control of the features, will help you make any type of image you can imagine! We spend 4-5 weeks in the classroom, 2-3 weeks shooting, and finish with a live critique where we, as a class see the difference in your work.  This is a great place to begin learning about your camera and introductory photography concepts.

Portrait Photography

Class Description: You will learn how to work with all different lighting. How to shoot in studio or on location, and how to master the gear you have to create inspiring work. I’ll also give you my top 5 go to poses for men and women. Towards the end of the program will talk about which editing programs I use to help my images pop.  By the end of the program, you’ll have created a portfolio of high-quality photos and you’ll have the skills and know-how to succeed in the world of portrait photography.

No specific level of experience required.  DSLR cameras are preferred.

Photography & the Art of SeeingMaria Ellen Huebner for SUMMER_ARTofSeeing_PhotoClass_FullSizeRender copy

Class Description:  This class is an exploration of “seeing the art in the everyday”…an exploration of that beauty of that & learning to talk about it.  We will practice shooting using existing light while trying to remain a “fly on the wall.”  The instructor will share some techniques in the idea of shooting “on the street” while remaining unobtrusive to the scene.

This summer class session will be “walking the streets of Logan, Utah” and neighboring locations agreed upon pre-class session, be prepared with proper weather and walking attire.  We will concentrate and be challenged to create environmental portraiture, candid everyday scenes and people oriented landscape imagery while being ready to create pictorial imagery as we see it.

The class will have actual and on-line critiques on a weekly basis and the class will end with a small showing of work and a Portfolio Exchange.

The student should have a basic understanding of his or her camera and can use the camera of choice with access of a reflector or foam core fill card.

Please check out the instructor’s site before you sign-up.

    I would like to buy photography classes for my wife. Is the $98 dollar price the price for each individual class held each Monday? What is the total cost for the digital photography course?
    Also which types of cameras are good for the material that is gone over in the programs?

    •   January 30, 2017, 3:57 pm

      Hello! The total cost of the class is $98 for an 8-week course. Any working DSLR with a removable lens is ideal. Point and shoot cameras are okay, but many do not allow the full range of adjustments that will be discussed in class. Thank you for your questions!

    My husband and I would have to miss the first class. Would that be ok?

    Hi. My husband and I would like to enroll,but we would have to miss the first class. Is that ok?

    •   September 22, 2016, 4:25 pm

      Students have done it before, but of all of the 8 class sessions, the first is the most important, as we’re covering the fundamentals. Students missing the first class should independently study: aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and exposure.

      Photography Classes are offered year round. Thanks for you question, Jennifer!

      •   May 25, 2016, 12:30 pm

        Are there any summer / beginner classes offered? Maybe I’m not looking in the correct place…

        •   May 26, 2016, 1:30 pm

          Yes. I have just updated the summer term dates. Digital Photography is appropriate for beginningers who own a DSLR Camera. Stay tuned for some fresh courses this next fall. If you have an idea for a class you’d like to see email [email protected] and thank you for your comment.
