Why take a Photo Class ?

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, reunions, friends, your pets antics, vacations,  and gorgeous sunsets.
The next session of classes begins Jan 2nd. You may sign up by using the Paypal link in the right sidebar. I hope to see you in class.

Learn Photography Dayton Area


Photographers look for classes for a number of reasons.
There are absolute beginners needing to jump start their basic camera skills. There are the people who tell me: “I have had the camera for a while but I am still not getting the images I would like to achieve”.
Then you have the advanced amateurs who have reached a plateau in their progress and require a bit of jump starting in certain areas.
You can learn good camera and post processing skills as long as you are willing to put in the time needed for study and practice.
The place to learn and practice is right here and classes
are starting in 2 weeks on October 27th.
This is the place to be if you have ever wanted to really learn
both the vision and the good technical skills need to create great images.

July/August Classes Forming

Chillicothe Court House

Have you ever been out driving around and just see something that you just know would be a great image?   I was in Chillicothe the other day just about the time the court house lights were coming on. The court house clock tower looked good, but something was missing. I took the image anyway, blank sky and all…I just knew that it was worth something.  On the way home, about 1 hour and some 40 miles away, I found the rest of the image as storm clouds came up and I finished the image out of the car window. Remember that Summer classes begin on July 7th.
