Introduction to Learning How to See - One day class

                                                                      Next Class: June 17, 2017

Technology has made taking pictures available to everyone. It does not matter what camera you own (professional DSLR camera, pocket-size digital camera, or smart cellphone). However, technology cannot provide the ability to take artistic, good pictures. Snapshots provide memories; but they can also be pictures you would be proud to hang on your wall.

Morning session: 09:00-12:00 - How to take pictures you can be proud of

Good pictures have little to do with the camera you own. Good pictures have everything to do with how you see light, your subject, and background. In just a few hours I can show you how to turn your snapshots into photographs.

Afternoon session: 13:30-16:30 - Introduction to post processing (what you do after the picture is taken)

Good pictures start at the camera. Great pictures are post processed. The afternoon session introduces two pieces of software, one free (Microsoft Photo Gallery) and one subscription program (Adobe Lightroom). This session compares these two pieces of software and shows how to make good pictures great. This comparison should provide enough information for you to decide what is best for you.

With many years experience, I can show you how to take pictures you would be proud to hang on your wall.  Class size is limited to 18 people.
