Instructor: Dan Feighery
Class limit: 12
This course is intended as a follow-on from our fall 2017 Basic Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) class. A prerequisite is that attendees understand the basic operation of their DSLR camera. Expanding from the rule of thirds in composition, we’ll consider and apply elements of art as they apply to photography. We will also explore the topic of lighting in more detail, including use of natural light, artificial lighting for
table-top photography, and on- and off-camera flash. Through weekly shooting assignments and in-class peer review, we’ll focus on improving the arrangement of subjects within the picture space and how we light that subject matter.
Dan Feighery holds a BS in physics from St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia and a master’s degree in public administration from Golden Gate University in San Francisco. Photography has been one of his hobbies for the past seven decades.
