How To Be a Better Photographer
The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)
1-3pm
Free

Photographer John Bentham who teaches advanced classes for The Digital Photo Academy in New York City will lead this workshop with the aim of improving YOUR photographs. Utilizing portrait, documentary and travel images shot on assignment around the world and presented in dramatic slide-shows, John will cover aspects beyond the basics of photography. We will discuss artistic considerations such as composition and subject choice, and technical issues like lighting on location (both ambient and flash) using Lastolite and Elinchrom gear, reading the histogram, color balance, depth of field. Got Questions? … Bring ’Em, John will hold a Q&A and is happy to answer any “How did you shoot that?” queries in addition to offering advice on upgrading your camera, lens or other equipment.
