Beginners Class: Creating Artistic Photos - HoneyBee Canyon Park 13880 E Rancho Vistoso Blvd Oro Valley, AZ 85755 United States - 9am - 3 hours
Looking through the camera viewfinder with an artist perspective. Understanding what makes dynamic composition. Many people look through the viewfinder and shoot a pictures without really seeing all the elements involved in the image they are taking. A slight adjustment up or down, right or left can make the difference from a piece of art and a average photo. Understanding how your tools work, specifically lenses and how they impact your images is also important to create the best images. It is important when shooting people to know what lens to use to make them look their best 70 to 135mm is considered the normal Portrait range but you may want to use a 50 mm on a person who is skinny or a 200mm on someone who is overweight to get the best results. These little professional secrets will be studied and use along with much more for you to create the best photos.

Bird Photography Class - Sweetwater Wetlands - 8am - 3 hours
Bird Photography is both exciting and calming at the same time because you get out of the pressures of the city to a quiet environment but when you start shooting the birds the excitement begins. You see a great variety of birds in many colors and sizes. The challenge is to catch the birds at the right moment to get the perfect image. As a photographer you must learn to become part of the environment so that the bird will go on with their regular activities. The larger the telephoto lens the better but an 80-200 lens will give you many opportunities for great shots.

Macro Photography gives us a chance to capture closeup details of almost anything. But to create a breath taking image we need to deal with composition and ways to make the image standout such as blurring the background. All you need is a Macro lens or zoom with macro capabilities. If you learn the concepts of Macro Photography you can apply them to rest of your work helping to see the details of all the images you shoot.
