Projects and Advanced Projects

4 Weeks $200

10 Weeks $400

          Both Projects and Advanced Projects are classes for those who have already taken 2 or more photography classes or have many years of shooting experience.

           The class works in groups as well as individually. Some classes are focused on improving skills with their camera or flash while others are about seeing better and working on compostion.

            While we try to crop in the camera and attempt to get the best image we can without post processing, it is still necessary and we learn techniques to improve our images without over processing
