What are YOU doing for Chuseok?
Designed so ANYONE can come out of the session with specific knowledge -- tips and tricks -- to improve their photography. Also, it's designed to expose you, through the tricks and tips themselves, to new and necessary knowledge in photo -- a little of the Photoshop you need, a little of the studio you always wondered about, and how to USE an external flash with bounce, shooting in night clubs, And it's divided into two sections so as to maximize your dollas (won)!
Friday, Session I: Intensive Photo Theory (3 hours, starting at noon)
Get the basics of shutter, aperture, and depth-of-field down -- which define a basic understanding of photography. This is designed for those who do not have a DEEP understanding of photography. Yes, it's a good brushup for those who took a photo class and understood it all -- 5 years ago.
SESSION II: Saturday and Sunday (3 hours each, starting at noon111111)
You need to use your flash, from your point-and-shoot with a napkin over the flash, to your DLSR with external flash and bounce capability for long dinner tables, to large studio flashes that are actually a cinch to use and can make you look like Nicole Kidman. Or not.
In the final session, post-production and other tips for processing photos in Photoshop -- as well as an introduction to what Photoshop actually IS, and why it's infinitely useful. How to organize and store photos, and more issues that will have come up by this time, such as fixing photo problems (and which you can't), and processing studio shots with basic special effects.
You take this course, your shit will be majorly upgraded, no matter who you are. And even if half of it doesn't stick, you'll at least know what you CAN do, and about the things you SHOULD aim to know and get to know later. You'll see the boundaries of what you should know about photography, from no matter where you sit.
You can attend a la carte, which helps divide beginners from those who already know photo basics:
SESSION I price: 75,000 won
SESSION II price: 125,000.
PACKAGE: 150,000 (save 50,000 and encourage you to do the review for those of you on the fence!)
This stuff's a bargain. Learn from one of Seoul's most recognized foreign photographers, who has shot in and out of Korea since 1994, and been published in major Korean and expat newspapers and magazines, and has studied photo with masters such as Ken Light and Susan Meiselas.
