Our photography classes are designed to build your confidence while enabling you to improve your photographic techniques. Instructors Craig Racicot and Jerry Roberts' collective experience in photography is only eclipsed by their enthusiasm for teaching the subject. Craig has spent 25 years at the San Diego Global as an animal keeper and photographer. Jerry served as the SeaWorld San Diego staff photographer for 13 years and has worked as a freelance photographer for the past 20 years.
Both Craig and Jerry deliver their topic, most often hands-on, with humor and humility while sharing their collective knowledge gained from many years in the world of corporate, photojournalist, and wildlife photography. Whether covering the birth of a killer whale or shooting through glass or wire to document the first hand feeding of the California condor, Craig and Jerry have a plethora of insights to share with you to help you make better pictures!
Classes are offered on Saturdays, 6:30 to 10 a.m.
Session 2: Intermediate Wildlife Photography
October 19 and 26
This two-part class is designed for graduates from our beginner's class and/or those ready to move up to the intermediate photographic level. We will explore some of the more sophisticated camera functions and techniques that will empower photographers to make a great picture even when the odds might seem stacked against you! Not familiar with white balance, exposure compensation, or telescopic compression? Have you wondered how to create or freeze motion? Increase or decrease depth of field? Or use the rule of thirds to improve your ability to compose an image? This class will greatly expand your confidence and knowledge of the advanced features offered by most of today's digital cameras. Familiarizing yourself with your camera's owner's manual and generating a list of questions will be helpful prior to attending.
Adults only, ages 16 and older. $144 per two-part session for members, $153 for nonmembers. Reservations can be made online! You can also make reservations by calling 619-718-3000.
