Determining Creativity

Every photo a person takes is created using the basic principles behind the aperture and shutter for working with depth of field, motion, and exposure. Carl simplifies the techniques behind these principles and applies them to working with more advanced shooting techniques and some fun creative effects. Carl will also show his video, The Wild Adirondacks.
