What we're about

The purpose of our meet up group, James Corwin Johnson Photo Experience, is to shoot, learn, and have fun. Our vision is to continue to raise the bar on our photographic and digital imaging skills, through Workshops, Travel, and Photo Walks.

The classes, trips and workshops are designed to be interesting, and unique, photographing locations, with instructors and guides that are willing to share knowledge about digital, and photo imaging techniques, as well as their ideas, and locations.

The programs include: Studio, portraiture, macro, infrared, fashion and glamour, nature and wildlife and birding.. In addition we offer instruction in Photoshop, printing, presentation, and more. The Trips and workshops travel the world, from California, Africa, and India.

For more than thirty years, James Corwin Johnson has been teaching his breath-taking style of photography to his students from around the world. First time students describe the experience as a powerful “re-awakening”, “as if someone had removed the veil from my eyes”. It is small wonder so many of his proteges become successful photographers in their own right.

James is happiest with a camera in his hand and a student at his side. Being able to share his experience and pass his craft is what drives him to travel the world sharing and teaching.

At Photo Experience we will turn your photograph into a Work of Art!

Join James Corwin Johnson Photo Experience, with the goal of capturing their ultimate vision.

Intro to Digital Photography Class: Only $20

Photo Experience

$20.00

Are you still taking snapshots with a camera that is capable of doing so much more. This class will help you take advantage of the different modes and settings that you paid for but are not using. A little bit of education goes a long way when it comes to taking control of your photographic expression.

Everyone needs to start somewhere and this is the place. Even if you have had

your digital camera (point & shoot or DSLR) for a while, it always pays to go

over the basics of photography. We will go over camera basics, shooting modes

and photography techniques.

Equipment: Camera - point and shoot or DSLR

- any accessories you might have purchased

- camera manual (that paper thing we got with the camera but hardly ever read)

Understanding Digital Photography: The Camera

Photo Experience

$60.00

Understanding Digital Photography:

The Camera

Did you Just get a DSLR and now you are taking snapshots with a camera that is capable of doing so much more. Now is your chance to learn how to get the most out of your camera. Class begins the first Wednesday of the month at Photo Experience, Don't miss it!

1 of 4 in a series

Gives an overview of digital camera operation, using Auto & Scene modes and explains the formulas the camera manufacture uses to take a photograph using a so-called automatic exposure. Once you understand how the camera thinks we explain how the Program modes work, using the same kind of logic the scene modes use, except the program modes give the photographer so much more control of the image capture. In other words, you will learn how to take the picture instead of the camera taking the picture. Once you understand how the program mode works you are ready to understand how and why we use manual mode. The class covers the techniques that determine your mode & why and why you would use them. You will learn the langue of photography like Exposure,ISO, Metering Modes, White Balance, picture Styles, focus points, image size, focus points & more. If you have a nice camera remember, It's not the camera that takes the picture it's the photographer. If the camera is takeing the picture, it might just ba a snap shot rather than a photograh
