2016 Photography Classes at Silvio’s Photoworks

Hello Fans, Followers, and Friends!!

Welcome to 2016!! We hope Santa brought you the gifts or Camera’s of your dreams!! If so I will be teaching a series of photography classes at one of Southern California’s premier camera retailers, Silvio’s Photo Works in Torrance California. After many conversations with Silvio, we decided that it was time to teach basic photography in a way that will allow you to create better images with your DSLR’s or Point-N-Shoot, or even your hand held camera’s by covering the questions most raised by new, beginning and casual camera enthusiasts.

Photography is as fun as it can be frustrating, especially when you see amazing photographs and what comes out of your camera is, well lets just say not quite as beautiful as those you see elsewhere. In these classes I will be teaching how to take ‘Basic Control’ of your camera without mind numbing technical terms as well as how to look through those view finders or LCD screens to see more like a photographer or artist!
Basic Photography, It’s all about Balance!
Dates: Jan 13 2016 – Introduction to Nikon
Feb 23 2016 – Introduction to Nikon

Time: 7:30pm – 9:30pm

In this class we will cover how to use your new (or not so NEW) NIKON CAMERA and the pieces of exposure. These are the things that make a pleasing or emotional image. We will discuss and show examples of;

the effects of Shutter speed,
the effects of Aperture settings,
the effects of ISO

We will talk about how to use each of these to create the images you imagine. Don’t worry!! I promise I will do this in a way that is fun, memorable and by the time you leave, you […]

Shashin Photography has now for 3 years running have had multiple pieces selected for display, with our image ‘Ginza Streets’ receiving a Judges Choice award.

This is a wonderful accomplishment, as our studio photographs normal everyday Mom’s, Wife’s, Girlfriends, and Single Women of all shapes and sizes. We do not work with Professional Cover Models or World Wide Media figures, but people just like you!

This year Sameena our fantastic Cover Girl has been selected for display in the OC Fair’s Portrait division, this image is a traditional single shot portrait using all traditional means of posing and lighting and minimal post production work, i.e. we did it in camera.

The Saloon Keeper has been selected for display in Electronic Arts as it is an Envronmental Photograph made up of 8 different images. 3 images used to create a light HDR effect on the saloon, multiple images to create the sky, and even 2 different images to create the dirt road.
