A Shot of Your Own (Back by Popular Demand)

This class will be based entirely on you, the photographer, and your personal needs. Each week we will embark on a new CREATIVE VENTURE or subject of the class's desire. This is as close as it gets to personal instruction. Classes, discussions and critiques will revolve around the subject at hand for the week. Our classes are based on the philosophy that students learn more by doing than simply by being instructed. We will help you learn to make the best possible photographs. You name it, we do it.
