Wishing you Happy Holidays from Stephen Carl Photography.
This bridge, decked out for the holidays, is located just outside the
Greenbriar entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The print of it, called Holiday Highway, is a best seller for me.
It is available on my Etsy site or, if you are visiting the Smoky Mountains,
you may purchase a copy at the Smoky Mountain Pottery store.
Located on the Arts & Craft loop in Gatlinburg.
If you are anywhere close to Dayton, Ohio…

Are you getting a new camera for Christmas?
Do you already have a nice camera but are unsure of how to get the most from it?
Looking for a great gift for the family “record keeper”?
Then use the sign up form in the side bar and get in a 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.

You will learn: How to use the manual controls such as shutter speeds, aperture, white balance, and ISO. How to “see light” to make great images. How to compose the image to achieve the greatest impact. How to use “Depth-OF-Field” to control the sharpness of you image. And so much more!!!

The door of a barn here in the Smoky Mountains. I don’t think they build them like this anymore.
And do not forget to put your X on the sign up form if you would like to learn a lot more about your camera and how to get really good photos. Classes begin on Jan 7th so use the Paypal form in the right sidebar to register.
As I sit here in my office, looking out the window at the 60* weather we are having, I think back to last year at this time. A much different look to the outdoors.
Better or worse? You decide. For me, I will take the overcast and snow in preference to the nasty and boring clear blue sky that holds no photographic interest for me.
Of course, I have never had to shovel a clear blue sky……
Just a side note: The classes are filling up fast for the March/April term. If you want a place in class you need to let me know.
