Immerse yourself into photography.


What you’ll learn

  • How to apply the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of pho­tog­ra­phy to var­ied subjects
  • How to inter­pret a sit­u­a­tion in terms of aper­ture or shut­ter priority
  • How to adjust your expo­sures based on chang­ing light conditions
  • How com­po­si­tion can affect expo­sures and vice versa
  • How to start think­ing of every­day sit­u­a­tions like a photographer


Our Immer­sive Pho­towalk work­shop aims to teach how the fun­da­men­tal prin­ci­ples of pho­tog­ra­phy (and the mod­ern fea­tures of your cam­era) that you dis­cov­ered in the begin­ner work­shops apply to prac­ti­cal pho­tog­ra­phy in the real world. It’s a nov­el expe­ri­ence whose pri­ma­ry pur­pose is to have you tak­ing lots of pic­tures of var­i­ous sub­jects in chang­ing light, all under the watch­ful eye of a pro­fes­sion­al photographer. 

This out­door work­shop will have you out from “day­light to twi­light” to prac­tice pho­tog­ra­phy in var­i­ous light­ing con­di­tions. We’ve timed the sched­ule of every Immer­sive Pho­towalk to start approx­i­mate­ly 2.5 hours before sun­set. It allows you to expe­ri­ence tak­ing pho­tos from bright day­time, through the “gold­en hour” and sun­set, and into the “blue hour” and twi­light. Remem­ber to bring your tri­pod or flash!

Ulti­mate­ly, our goal is to empow­er you to con­fi­dent­ly and quick­ly make an expo­sure that meets your artis­tic inten­tions, no mat­ter the situation.

Important Details

This work­shop is the cul­mi­na­tion of our begin­ner and inter­me­di­ate pho­tog­ra­phy cours­es, and it’s designed for stu­dents who have tak­en Work­shops 101–104 or their equiv­a­lents. We build upon and rein­force those fun­da­men­tal con­cepts, but we do not re-teach them. 

Make it pri­vate! Course 210 is avail­able as a pri­vate pho­tog­ra­phy course for 1–2 people.
