Spring Course

I was asked by the Stellenbosch University to be part of their spring school & handle the advanced photography class. It was a week long course the 1st week of Sept. My class was really small, only 3 people in the end, but was great to have a more personal course & could help everyone individually nice & easily. We had a lecture & shoot each day & processing in the afternoon. All the shoots were on campus, 2 at the botanical gardens, one at the Jan Marrais Park & the walk up & the last on the infamous rooi plein. I focused mainly on vignetting & creative use of DoF, movement, use of lenses & finding good interesting angles so that your image says what you want it to.

I didn't shoot too seriously myself, but did take a few shots to help explain & show the participants what I was after, how I think & look for other interesting elements around my subject to make the shot more dynamic. Here are a few shots of mine from that week.
