Creating great photographs in a busy environment can seem intimidating at first, but this one day workshop will give you strategies for shooting well and quickly. Centering on the public activities in a busy Boston area, this class will introduce composition and technical methods for photographing interesting moments in fast-paced environments. The technical focus of this workshop is learning how to use and control shutter speed, so you are able to freeze and blur motion intentionally. The skills from this workshop can also be applied to photographing family gatherings, pets or while traveling. 

Location: Rose Kennedy Greenway / Haymarket / City Hall Business District

Students are responsible for bringing their own DSLR camera with manual funtions and supplies. View the supply list.
