Filters 101: An Introduction

This class is designed to help any photographer or videographer that is ready to take the next step in their creative skillset and take them one step further. Filters are a must have in any camera bag with their brilliance to up your game and allow you to shoot in any scenario, whenever you want. Wether its a close focusing issue or you want to bring out a bit more saturation and texture in a landscape- a filter is the best solution.

Allow me to help you develop your understanding of how you could better incorporate filters into your portfolio to make you a better artist. Once we unravel the secrets to using filters, you now have the possibilities to go above and beyond in your photos. After this class you will begin to see that filters aren't just a random accessory but a necessary tool in your artistry.

Be creative, daring and take great photos!

Nicely done. Clear, concise and easy to understand. One suggestion: maybe shoe examples of shots with all the specialty filters.
The teacher is knowledgeable and explains things in a clear, digestible way.

Toronto Photographer

I am a Canadian-born photographer and camera trainee splitting my time between my home in Toronto and the rest of the world. 

My passion and enthusiasm for the camera department has led me to travel over the past 6 months between Europe, Iceland, North and South America. I have been working with various film companies, being trained in optics and camera, whilst discovering a new perspective through my photography. 

As I continue to travel in 2016, I am constantly on the look out for new collaborations and striking visuals.
