What you'll learn in this photography class:

Incorporating movement in a photograph can bring an image to life, emphasizing a shower of cherry petals or the flight of a bird. You'll experiment with leaving your camera lens open longer to capture motion, and learn how the amount of light in your environment affects your decision. 

We'll look at a variety of images for inspiration, before going into the Thain Family Forest to capture the movement of our waterfall. 

Important:
Please bring a tripod and a camera that allows you to manually adjust your shutter speed.
