While I was in Dana Point for the Whale Festival, I met a guy showing his photos. He also teaches photography through the city of San Clemente. This isn't an endorsement but it sounded interesting and I thought someone in the club might find this useful. Here is the information he sent me: -- Paul McElligott Recalculating Temple Owl Ted Turner - "Sports is like a war without the killing." ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Frank L. Ritenour <[address removed]> Date: Mon, Mar 9, 2009 at 9:38 AM Subject: Photography Class Information To: [address removed] Paul, I want to welcome you to the path to improve your photography and start having fun with it. It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday at the Dana Point Whale Festival. Our class ���From Snapshots to Art��� takes you through the steps, in camera and Photoshop, to improve to the point where you are making photographic art. Our next class starts on Monday April 13th. It will be held on Monday nights, 6:30 to 9:30 PM. This class is through the San Clemente Parks and Recreation Dept. It is usually held in the Community Center on Del Mar Street in San Clemente. The price is $350 for the eight classes and two field trips. For me: I have attached the class overview with an information sheet for you to fill out and e-mail back to me. It gives me a way to learn about what you want to get out of the class so I can make any adjustments as necessary.

Sincerely, Frank Ritenour Ritenours Photography at Studio 22sc www.Studio22sc.com FaceBook: Frank Ritenour Newsletter Introduction It has been a few months since the holidays. Everyone needed a rest from all the holiday activities. It seems like so much has happened in this short period of time, but not it's about to wind back up. In this newsletter we will give you an update of the upcoming activities in the art community. San Clemente Art Association The San Clemente Art Association Spring Art Show unveiled the winners of this show. I entered "View from the Casa" which won second place in photography. In order to not have the inside of the arch a silhouette, I shot the picture as a high dynamic range image. More on this new and exciting photographic technique in a workshop later. Upcoming Art Shows ��Sunday March 1 and Sunday April 5 -- The San Clemente Village Art Fair. I will be at my usual spot on the corner of Del Mar Street and Ole Vista. Saturday and Sunday March 7 & 8 plus Sunday March 15 -- The Dana Point Whale Festival in Dana Point Harbor, located just south of Harpoon Henry's on the "Board Walk." Stop in at Harpoon Henry's and say hello to Jackie one of our students. Saturday March 14 -- San Juan Capistrano Art Show, just over the railroad tracks on the Los Rios Street side. Professional Photographers of California Show One of the best places to view the state of the art of high end photography is at the Professional Photographers of California show at the Pasadena convention center March 20 thru 22. This is a highly recommended show to attend and see the level these photographic artist have taken their art. Upcoming Photography Class The Spring San Clemente Parks and Recreation magazine is out and you can find the information on my next "From Snapshots to Art" class on page 50. This is a hand's on class where you learn how to take control of your camera so you can start producing photographic art. I take you step by step through the process from composition, rules of art, how to develop your eye, how to take control of the camera, process images in Photoshop, and much more. This is an eight week class with two field trips to put into action what is covered in class. Sign up through the city at www.San-Clemente.org. Call me at (949)[masked] if you have any questions. Upcoming Workshops I have an ongoing series of workshops targeted for the advanced photographer or those who have completed the "From Snapshots to Art" class and want to take their photography to the next level. In these workshops we go into depth on each subject. We start with a class that will prepare you to take pictures for the subject, then go out on a field trip to execute in the field, then back into the classroom to process the images. We have just completed the studio portraiture workshop. Here is a list of the upcoming workshops and the starting dates: Beach Photo Shoot - Tuesday February 24 (starts this week so call today if you want to take this workshop) High Dynamic Range -- Tuesday March 11 (Sign up now because everyone wants to do HDR. It's the hottest thing in photography) HDR Pans -- Tuesday March 24 (We will take it up another level by producing HDR pan's) Macro photography -- Tuesday April 7 (we will get in close and personal on these pic's) Extended Depth of Field -- Tuesday April 21 (We add the needed depth of field to your work) Black and White -- Tuesday May 5 (Take your art into the ever popular realm of black and white images) These workshops are held at the Side Street Gallery on Cabrillo Street in San Clemente. Call me at (949)[masked] to enroll. Bonus Activity Last year we had a bonus class where we photographed the 4th of July fireworks at the San Clemente pier. Everyone who participated had a great opportunity to do night photography. This year we will have a bonus, no charge class for our photography class students to photograph the Hot Air Balloon Festival at Lake Skinner in Temecula June 5 thru 7. It will be a fun activity and a chance to get some beautiful shots of the hot air balloons. Jackie has promised to show us how the USC crowd does tail gating. I can't wait. If you would like to join us, call me at (949) 369-7871. That's a Wrap That's enough talking for now. Remember to keep your camera with you and watch the weather reports for the more interesting sky. You can't get the shot if your camera is at home.
