Photo Fundamentals Class - April 10

Just a reminder - my next Photo Fundamentals class will be held on Saturday April 10. It is from 9AM to 4PM and full of useful information. Come learn how to take significantly better photos from that new SLR you got. I know there are lots of knobs and switches on the thing, but I can help you feel very comfortable with the camera and how to improve your photos as well.

It's simple - a caveman could do it.

Sweet Cakes

Not sure exactly what that title really means, but it sure comes to mind for some reason while considering these photos from yesterday.

Porcelain Princess

Saw this face looking at me earlier today. The light was right. Click - got it. A little slice of life, common or miraculous, it depends on your perspective.

Sign up for the Photo Fundamentals Class - April 10

Next Photography Fundamentals class coming up on April 10.

I've been teaching a photography class now for several years. It's intended for owners of Digital SLR cameras (like you just got for Christmas) who aren't sure how to use them and want to take advantage of all the knobs, switches and fancy menu choices to improve the quality of your own photography.

The course is a one-day event, from 9am to 4pm (I'll provide your lunch), taught here at my home. We'll cover fundamentals of photography in general and apply them to your cameras. We'll address the various features of your camera and you'll actually put them to practice during a couple of shooting exercises during the day. We'll look at your photos and analyze how well you did - don't be shy, everybody shares their photos.

It's lots of fun and I always get very positive feedback about the class. If you're interested in knowing more, or getting a copy of the course outline, please give me a call or shoot me an email message. I limit the class to eight students so I can give everyone personal attention to assure you get the most out of the class.

Senior photos - it's time...

It's time to start thinking about your high school senior's graduation photos. Give me a call or shoot me an email and let's put together something fun and different. I've been doing senior portraits for a few years now and actually it's one of the most fun things I do.

In addition to the photo session that can be as original and wacky as you can dream up, I have some nice ideas for prints and a very affordable senior album. In fact, one of my albums was selected by my publisher and used in their traveling displays - here's a link. I have a copy of this album here at the office, stop by and take a look.

To see a couple of albums I've done for graduates in the last few years, click here and here.

Here on the blog, I have some photos of seniors from the last few years. You can find them using the Labels on the left-hand side of the blog or by following this link directly.

An aspiring model, Angela is graceful and confident in front of the lens. We'll be seeing more of her.

My brave cousin - part II

You may remember that my cousin Amy had a bout with breast cancer last year and that she asked me to photograph her and her family as they shaved her head as her hair began to fall out. Here's the link in case you missed it:

I'm happy to report the rest of the story. Amy is recovered and doing very well. I really like the short hair and hope she stays with it. She totally pulls it off.

She stopped by the studio yesterday while doing errands and I persuaded her to sit for the camera. I grabbed five or six shots. Here's a representative photo.
