IN-PERSON PHOTO SALON!!
(ALSO A FUND RAISER FOR UKRAINE - WE WILL TRIPLE OUR PROCEEDS TO MAKE A DONATION TO
Saturday, April 30 3:00 - 4:30
These are very friendly, relaxed get-togethers at my apartment in Lansdowne. Photographers of all levels are welcome to share pictures, get photography tips, and discuss camera equipment. Feedback from the group provides encouragement and inspiration to go out and take more pictures. These informal photography critiques offer an excellent opportunity to start identifying themes in your work and to get ideas for new directions. Group size is limited, so if you can come an RSVP is required by email or call (610) 626-7854. Cost is $10. These Salons often fill-up, so it's best to get your spot early.
Things being the way they are, we can't guarantee in-person salons in the coming months, but we are excited to take advantage of this month to see everyone.
Both In-Person and Online

Fundamentals 1: Camera Operations is for students who are just starting out, or want a good review of the basic camera functions.
Fundamentals 2: Applications is for students who have some comfort with the camera and want to start applying their skills to expand their photographic range.
Fundamentals 3: Composition takes photography beyond the subject, and encourages you to see the artistic and compositional opportunities in everyday life. Here is a chance for your right brain to come out and play!
Fundamentals 4: Lighting Across the Genres is for students who are ready for the next critical step: lighting. Explore sophisticated means of controlling both natural and artificial light for portraits, landscape and still life to get just the mood and effects you want.
Advanced Photography - Using self-generated assignments and in-depth critiques we will help you move forward in your work.
New Two-Session Class
"The negative is the score. The print is the performance" Ansle Adams.
The masters knew how to get the absolute most out the negative using dark room techniques such as adjusting contrast, dodging and burning, and cropping. Today we have an even more powerful array of editing options to bring out our pictures' full potential. This class is an introduction to basic editing adjustments, including straightening, cropping, color correction, histograms, exposure, contrast.... it's a long list, but with a little instruction you will be able to realize your visions and produce pictures worthy of printing. Also essential for preparing images for books and websites.
To schedule call (610) 626 - 7854 or email email@example.com.

Please Note: New Cancellation Policy
As we transition to this phase of providing photography instruction both in-person and on-line, we are instituting a new policy covering cancelled lesson.
Students are asked to provide at least 24 hour notice when an appointment cannot kept.
When a lesson is cancelled with less than 24 hour notice, students have the option of rescheduling for a $10 rescheduling fee. If no make-up session is scheduled, however, the full amount of the missed lesson will still be charged.
Exceptions in the case of emergencies will be determined by Owen on a case by case basis.
