2017 ShutterFest Course Lineup
ShutterFest is always growing and always listening to you and your feedback!
This year, we have made changes to the way the courses are structured, tied directly to your feedback after last year’s event.
This will be the first year we have courses segmented by skill level: Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced.
In addition, we have categorized classes by type: Hands-on, Live Demonstration, and Lecture.
Beginner: Just starting out or relatively new to a given subject matter. Basics will be covered and the course will move at a slower pace. The instructor will spend a little more time trying to explain concepts to ensure everyone is following. On a scale of 1-10 consider this level a 1-3 on the given topic.
Intermediate: Having a grasp of some basic concepts. This course level will move at a faster pace and assume you have basic knowledge covered on the given subject matter. On a scale of 1-10 consider this level a 4-6 on the given topic.
Advanced: You have working knowledge of the given subject matter, but are looking for more fine-tuning and some advanced topics to take your work to that next level. DO NOT expect instructors to explain basic concepts in this course. On a scale of 1-10 consider this level a 7-10 on the given topic.
Hands-On: These are shooting courses. You will be shooting and working. Bring your camera, gear, or whatever you need for the course and to create create images. Expect to have some level of shooting.
Live Demonstration: These are instructor-led courses where you will see a live demonstration of what the instructor is teaching. You can still bring your cameras to these courses and you can photograph, but the goal of the course is NOT for you to shoot or to ensure you get a shot. The goal is for you to see how and why the instructor does what he/she does in order to get the final result.
Lecture: These are non-shooting courses. Typically, classroom based, bring your laptop and notepad and focus on learning!
