Designing the Compelling Photograph

Registration for this event is now closed.

Thursday July 22

6:30 PM  –  8:30 PM

A 3-part photography class focusing on exploring the principles of composition and a range of creative settings and camera handling. The first and the third sessions will be online; the first to meet each other, share sample photographs and explore the principles of composition, the third to share select results made during the Saturday session together at the Garden. The Garden will be our studio, our canvas, our focus.  The class is aimed at all skill levels of photography using any digital camera from phone to point-and-shoot to dSLR to mirrorless. The class does not cover how to use your camera, but Ray will be happy to address your questions on camera handling and settings, especially on the Saturday at the Garden.

This is a three-part class and once you register for the first one, you will automatically be registered for all three. Registration fee includes all three classes.
