Photography & the Art of Seeing

Class Description:  This class is an exploration of “seeing the art in the everyday,” an exploration of that beauty & learning to talk about it.  We will practice shooting using existing light while trying to remain a “fly on the wall” if you will.  The instructor will share some techniques in the idea of shooting on the street while remaining unobtrusive to the scene.  We will also be researching other important and influential photographers that thrive on the streets of the world, in the present and the past.

This class will also have other non-shooting assignments like talking about what inspires you to the medium along with some outside research.  We will also be introduced to other camera formats such as a 4×5 View Camera & some other alternative ways of capture.

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

The student should have a basic understanding of his or her camera & can use the camera of choice.  Please be prepared to walk the streets of Logan every other class.

    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.

    Do you offer any fall beginning photography classes?

    •   June 2, 2015, 9:50 pm

      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 rhoth@cachearts.org and thank you for your comment.
