What makes a great Photograph ? - The four key elements workshop
I was always taught that there were four key elements involved in the creation of a great photograph and unless I could fully grasped the importance and correct application of each of them, my images would be less than they could be. Two years ago I developed a series of classes around the teaching of these four key elements. The series was spread over four evenings and was a great success. Since that time I have condensed the instruction into a one day workshop and I am offering it again on Sunday Feb 24th from 10am to 4pm in Pembroke. It’s just $55 for this excellent examination of the key elements of photography that is going to have you creating much stronger images. More details can be found at:
Getting the right exposure – Mastering your metering modes
Saturday March 2 – 9am – noon
Mastering the various metering modes on your camera is a way to get more control over contrasting situations and is an important skill for creating images in which the key elements are correctly or creatively exposed.
If you want to learn how to master this essential feature of your camera then come along to this meetup. We will be a fairly small group, just 8 attendees, so you will be sure to get plenty of attention.
Just one spot left to fill - $40 more details at: http://www.meetup.com/Photoworks/events/102135192/

Sat Mar 2nd Pembroke 3pm – 5pm
Whether you use Photoshop Elements or the Full version of Photoshop there are some tools and techniques that are absolutely essential for the photographer to know if she is going to get the best out of the software. I have used Photoshop since its inception almost on a daily basis in my work as a photographer and I really enjoy teaching you the skills that continue to save me hours of time in my post-processing. Many people have already taken this class and remarked on how much they learned in such a short space of time. Why not take your chance to really get to grips with this complex software.
Join this very small group on Saturday March 2nd from 2pm until 5pm . Just $40 (three spots left)
