What you'll learn in this more photography class:

Are you the person they turn to in the office when there is a birthday party, an awards ceremony, a visit by the Chairman of the Board. Why? Because you are the ONLY person who knows how to operate the office camera. So bring your camera (or the office camera), plus all your lenses and your flash unit and join us in this class that will train you to take more professional pictures of office events AND will help you turn those pictures into images that tell a STORY to make your PR Director happy. 

Given in an office-type environment by professional photographer E. David Luria (who – in his murky past - was once good-ole-Dave-the-office-photographer of HIS office! ) this class will cover topics such as how to pose people, white balance issues, use of external flash on Manual Mode, choice of backgrounds, shooting group portraits, how to cover office conferences and meetings, “grip & grin” award ceremonies, and candid shots of co-workers that show the interaction on the job or in the field.  

Also, if you want to learn how to cover association meetings and conventions as a professional event photographer (a job that pays very well in the DC area), this class will help you get the skills you need.  

Mr. Luria, who has photographed conventions for several corporations and association meetings in DC, San Francisco, New Orleans and Boston, will also review recommended equipment needs for this type of photography.

at Washington Photo Safari - Downtown, Washington, D.C. 1661 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20503

Is your camera smarter than you?  Are you confused by all those weird "Av," "Tv" "S", "A" or "P" choices on the mode dial, causing you to take refuge on "Auto?" Are you only using $100 worth of the features on your $800 camera? Are your photos too blurry, dark, or the wrong color? Or do you just want your pictures to be more interesting and artistic?...
