Monthly one chapter about 6-10 pages..
we will use the book as an outline..

Text.. Quick and Easy Ideas Taken from the Master Photographers
of the Twentieth Century.
By Matthew Bamberg Publisher Course Technology

1- I will talk about the Photographer and his contribution and target what was technique that he used.

2- Open Discussion on the photographer.

3- Home work.. apply the technique and take a picture using the technique.

each following month we will review the homework assignment.. before we advance to the next photographer.

Any Interest? Please sign up, class size is limited to 16 photographers

btw it would not build on each master, so if you miss a meeting it won't matter and you come back in at any point, like an all night movie.. LOL

The reason I'm doing this is to force me to learn all of them, I know some techniques, but I'm missing some.." Teach to learn"
