The Joy of Photography Class in recess
Instructors: Kathleen Clemons/Ron Goldman                                            Duration: 12 Weeks            Cost: US$595  
Join photo instructors Kathleen Clemons and Ron Goldman for this exciting 12 week adventure in photography. This class is designed for photographers who want to make photos for the simple joy it brings to them, while learning some new skills, techniques, and ways of looking at the world. It's for those who aren't necessarily looking at photography as a career, but want to be the best photographer they can be, and have some fun too!

Ever feel like you just can't think of anything to shoot? Ever have a brilliant photographic idea but are unsure how to pull it off? Has your camera been sitting in it's bag since that last photography class you took? If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, then this is the class for you! We'll bring you a new lesson and assignments each week to get you out shooting and making photographs that stretch your creative vision and help you capture that incredible feeling that successful photos can bring.

Not only will we show you how to get out of the "creative rut" and "photographer's block", but we will give you an exciting reason to get that camera out and shoot every week, and bring the magic back to your photography.

Some of the topics we'll be working on include:

What to shoot when there's nothing to shoot
The joys of aperture and shutter priority
Macro and selective focus
Shapes, lines and abstracts
Rule breaking and developing a personal style
Patterns, textures and movement
Keywords, assignments and concepts
Natural light and artificial lighting on a shoestring...
... and so much more!

Course Requirement:
A working knowledge of aperture and shutter speed and a desire to bring the joy of photography into your work, and life. Suggested but not required: tripod, assorted lenses such as wide angle, standard and telephoto zoom, macro lens or extension tubes, lensbaby. Shutter release. Various filters such as polarizer, ND's, etc. Reflectors and diffuser. These are not necessary but will give you many more options when shooting the assignments!
