Obedience Training for Your Camera - "Saturday Edition"

• If you've never attended an Obedience Training for Your Camera workshop, you are invited to sit in, "kick the tires"... and leave. Well, I don't mean it to sound like I want you to leave, it's just that I don't want you to feel obligated in any way.

Imagine what it would mean to you if you knew that there are 5 predictable and unique things a viewer's eyes are compelled to do when looking at a photo - AND that you know what they are.  AND that they mean the difference between merely mediocre and marvelously magnificent!  That would put you in the driver's seat when deciding how and when to compose an image that is both visually and emotionally appealing, wouldn't it?  Well, that's what we learn to do at Obedience Training for Your Camera.

OTFYC is a workshop series independent of MeetUp and the "Saturday Edition" has about 10 regular, commited students, who are making noticeable, steady improvements in their photography. (So, ignore the numbers you see in the RSVP column. You'll have more company than that!

See for yourself if being my guest and investing 4 hours in your growth as a photographer is really smart. You'll find out why the "regulars" keep coming back. After all, there's no contract. The "regulars" have found that they get a great learning experience each time.

To give you an idea how helpful OTFYC is, some students have gone through the entire program and asked to continue on with more challenging assignments.

It's my job to make sure everyone gets what they come for: To learn how to consistently put visual and emotional appeal into their images. It's that simple and The VALID Method is that effective.

Your choice: Visit us once as a guest on the 3rd Saturday of the month – or 2 Tuesday nights of those months, January through May (see the Tuesday OTFYC event for details). Both meet at the Garden Ranch YMCA. Please RSVP for any class you wish to attend so I can advise you what to bring to enhance your learning experience; it varies according to date.

    When people are still hanging around after class is over, asking questions and expressing gratitude for what they learned, is that an indication that things went well?
