Why Take A Photo Class ??

Do you own a digital camera but are so overwhelmed by all the bells, whistles, and buttons that you give up and leave it  set on automatic?

Would you like to  be  able to make excellent images instead of the average snapshots you get from the automatic settings?

On the first night of one of my beginning classes a student expressed the opinion that he took good photos. After 3 lessons the same student stated that he now realized what a good photo looked like and that his work was greatly improving.

One of the primary reasons to take a photo class is to learn to appreciate and identify a quality image. This gives you a tangible goal to aim for.

A second reason is to learn the technical information required to create a quality image. An excellent result is based on proper knowledge and correct application of photographic principles.

A third reason is to receive feedback and support as you develop your photographic talents. A good instructor will guide  you to create your best work.

The last but not least is to HAVE FUN !  Enjoy and share your photos of family holidays,  get togethers, friends, your pets antics, vacations,  and gorgeous sunsets.

Start Learning Today!!

Class Project


Last night, on the first night of class, the advanced class went to a local park to take on their first still life project. A pair of glasses with a bit of “champaign” in them and an entire park for creative backgrounds. The  object was to create an image that expressed a feeling. I advised and took happy snaps of what they were working on. This is one from the end of the evening.
Not bad for the first time…… 

Downed Dragon


This giant was originally a pine tree. In driving past,
the angle and the light were just right to
reveal this dragon hidden inside.
One of the points I always emphasize in my
photo classes is learning to see creatively.
99 out of 100 people would have driven past this
old dead tree and never seen a thing.
In fact, one person to ask me what I was taking a photo
of and gave me the strangest look when I pointed and said,
“that dragon over there”.
I encourage my students to look outside box and not just take
the first photo they may see.  I teach techniques that I
have learned over the years that shine a unique light
on the ordinary and make it special.
