On Saturday, we will focus strictly on classroom studies.

It is required to bring your camera on this day, but we will not be doing any serious shooting. We will have lunch catered during the classroom session as well. You are allowed to video tape and record our sessions! We will be going over a lot of material, so any way you can retain it is allowed!

On Sunday, we will take our cameras out to do a photo walk around The Star and to execute and practice techniques we learned the previous day. After our photo walk, we will then take our images into Lightroom to work on them. This day will be focused on shooting and editing. We will once again have a lunch catered.
