With Laurie Klein
Immerse yourself in creative play with tools that fundamentally change the look of your photography. Laurie is known for her infrared photography. Here’s your chance to learn with an expert! We will have on hand a few infrared cameras as well as Lensbaby lenses and plastic cameras for you to experiment with. Just come and play! Laurie will turn you 360 degrees with exercises and thought-provoking themes and then put you right back where you started with new views, new stories, and new ideas for your photographic creativity. This class is for photographic adventurers who want to generate new paths for their photography.
You will learn how infrared works and the artistic effect of Lensbaby and other specialty lenses.
Hands-on work will include playing and shooting with Laurie’s infrared cameras, Lensbaby lenses (for Canon, Nikon, Lumix, Sony and iPhone) and the other toys Laurie brings along. Laurie will watch you shoot and give you feedback and ideas.
Bring to class at least two cameras (one can be your phone), your notebook, a compact Flash card and an SD card so you can take home the images you capture with some of “Laurie’s toys.”
