Topics like, various exposure modes, and how and when to use each, lens selection and camera angles, use of natural light and location selection and so on will be covered.Day 2 will be co-taught with Ben and Julia, and they will be focusing on what to do after the capture. They will be talking about workflow such as backing up images, sorting and selecting favorites, editing, and finalizing images. Ben and Julia will be talking about this all in as much of an non-platform-specific way, and focusing more on concepts and strategies, so that users of all editing/computer platforms can benefit (although they are both Lightroom/Photoshop users). After that they will talk about the business side of adventure photography. How to market yourself and to who, how to sell images, licensing, contract negotiating and copyright.
