We have a different photo theme bimontly and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations around Denver. It's a great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.

Who can attend? Open to all skill levels, from beginners to keen amateurs. The photography instructor is there to help you with camera settings and provide any advice you need.

What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!

What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!

The meeting point and full details for the day are sent in the booking confirmation email to the email address you provide at time of booking.

We also occasionally hold more formal beginners classes which last 3 hours and are limited to 6 people. These classes are perfect for complete beginners who want to start using manual mode and those who want to brush up on the basics. See the dates below.

Join the Denver Photography Facebook Group to share your photos after the session.

Motion Blur Photography - 16th Street Mall - 5 pm - 2 Hours
Capturing movement is something photographers often do when photographing sports or other fast moving subjects. Motion blur is the apparent streaking of moving objects in a photograph. It’s a great way to capture movement and can be used for any image in which you want to show motion. We are planning on capturing the motion of downtown Denver in the evening.

Understanding Your Light Meter & Histogram. - Panera Bread, Aurora - 10am - 2 Hours
As a photographer, understanding your histogram is extremely important to improve the quality of your images. The information contained within the histogram is a graphical representation of the pixels exposed in your image. By understanding this information contained within the histogram, it can help with the settings that you use in the conditions you are photographing under. We will talk about light meters, metering modes, discuss which mode for which purpose and study histograms.

Photographing Historical Buildings - 16th Street Mall at 16th and Lawrence in Writers Square - 10am - 2 Hours
Many historic buildings were not built with the light aspects found with modern buildings. Windows were often small and poky so the light coming through could be in narrow shafts causing chaos for your camera's exposure system. There are many details in and around the building waiting to be explored. You'll be surprised at the stone carvings present on the exterior walls that you miss at a quick glance. Join us as we walk through downtown Denver stopping to shoot historical buildings such as The Daniels and Fisher Tower, The Equitable Building, Denver Dry Goods Company Building, and Mountain States Telephone & Telegraph Company Headquarters (as time allows). LOTS OF WALKING IN THE COLD

Karl always has great information to share and I appreciate his knowledge and assistance. Plus, he's great with the group and very approachable, knowledgeable and responsive to questions. Working in the cold and snow was more challenging, but the group took it in stride. Learned some new techniques to try.

What a wonderful resource. Karl is a great teacher/facilitator. I've been at this for less than a year so I was worried, but it was a very relaxed, welcoming two hours. I definitely came away with solid tips I can work with to improve.
