Short overview of our class.
Friday, Day One
- First two thirds of
the day, we go over ‘how to see and think like a master artist’; most
learned by Michael decades ago from his collegiate degree, but also from 'on
the road real-time experience' gained from practicing the 'Michelangelo and
Leonardo da Vinci' thought process of controlling the eye in the art!
San Diego / Balboa Park locations
we shoot in:
2. The Botanical Gardens and reflecting pools.
4. Miscellaneous other areas in Balboa Park.
Sunday, Day Three: In the morning we meet at the San Diego Botanical Gardens (called Quail Gardens for decades until recently), where an abundance of interested plants flown in from world-wide locations have taken root and displayed their beauty for us to create with.
This third day covers a few more important concepts we have not had time to cover, how to control your depth of field, why it's important, how to make running water turn into smoke, and then an ice sculpture, and further cements the new thinking compositional processes. By the end of the day students report they now feel much more comfortable with everything overall and can now shoot in all manual settings with confidence and ease. There compositional skills are now honed to the extent that winning award in competitions should not come as a surprise, since now they know more than 90% of artists (photographers and painters) out there making 'art'.
Not bad, a roadmap on how to create great art for the rest of your life! Basically, you get a college degree and 40 years of the important things Michael has gleaned, all for price of a cheap digital camera. And without compositional and depth creating knowledge, combined with the most important things/tools to know about your camera, you will get nowhere fast; no matter how great the camera!!!

learn many essential techniques to take expert quality photos. For two of the
