As photographers we constantly strive for better images, but time and time again we fall short. Yes, we improve over time but it often seems like it is taking forever. A new camera, a new lens, or new post processing software can all give us a burst of inspiration, but that rarely lasts very long and we are once again dissatisfied with our results. While this is all part of the natural order of things, there is plenty we can do to improve our results and make our images much stronger.

This workshop series of six classes will take you on an adventure, pushing you to try out new techniques and learn new skills that will have you thinking and shooting with greater intent.

Comprising a well balanced mix of instruction, information and practical hands-on shooting spread over a number of weeks this series of classes will ensure that you spend the winter developing your ability to create strong images that directly communicate your intent to the viewer.

Learn how to lead your viewer's eye around the image.

Learn techniques to help you more effectively envision your shot before you press the shutter.

Understand what to include and what to exclude to create a strong impression of depth in your image.

Learn techniques to make the 3D world in front of you appear more realistic in your 2D image.

Understand how color, light, tone and focus can be combined to convey mood.
