Class description-
Daily journaling with a camera.
Tuesdays 6:3-9pm Oct 7-Nov 25

To make better images; you simply photograph. What surprises you? Makes you laugh? Think? What happens when you play with and have fun with your camera?

The goal of this class is to explore the act of seeing, the joy of visual expression. Musicians practice daily, creativity is a discipline. Photographing daily, even one image, will change how you visually interpret.

We will look at photographers who break rules, the definition of personal style, photographers who interpret light with elegance and people with grace. We will critique and edit each other’s images and produce photo books of the journey through online resources.

All cameras are welcome, even cell phone cameras. No experience needed, the desire to express something that has never been seen before is.
