Course format

In our 6 Week course there will be three fieldwork classes where I will guide you in all aspects of taking photographs including composition, lighting, framing and creating an interesting photo.

In the three studio classes you will learn about editing and photofinishing and how to turn your photos into works of art. My portfolio shows examples of the types of techniques you will learn about.

You can use any digital camera (including compact digital camera or smart phone) as long as it has greater than 5 megapixel resolution.

After the completion of the course you can continue to work on your images under my guidance, at no cost to you. When you have images ready they can printed, matted and framed (at your cost). Also there may be opportunities for your photos to be displayed online, which will be discussed with you at the end of the course.
