Course Description: They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Technology has made taking a picture simpler than ever, but the process has become so automated that the “art” of photography is becoming lost. If the lighting is wrong in your picture, you can just change the contrast in Photoshop.  Well, in our photography program, we teach you to carefully compose each shot to get it right the first time, without having to edit out unwanted results.  Equally important, in each class you will look over their work with a critical eye and edit down to most powerful pictures.  Session highlights include learning to manipulate perspective, and capturing impressions of images through reflective surfaces. The class concludes with a live gallery show over Zoom in which you get to display and discuss each of your works with family and loved ones separated by the pandemic.
