teen photographerPhotography: Teen and Adult Classes Offered
"Learning to Truly See"

Join us as we explore "Learning to Truly See". This class will focus on the aesthetics of photography. You will be introduced to design principles which will equip you better to capture photographically the image that first prompted you to press the shutter button, to analyze what it is you love about that photograph and how to have that happen more often. The instructor will work to guide each person toward developing a willingness to explore possibilities, find and follow the vision that is theirs alone and to take photos that are meaningful to them.

We will discuss and practice developing a sensitivity to movement, unity, harmony, variety, balance, proportion and pattern and their relationship to compositional choices.

"Learning to Truly See" is designed for beginner and advanced photographers. You need to know how to operate your film or digital camera.

Class Fee is $150.00 per person for each 2 session workshop.
