January 2016

A new year is upon us and with it the chance for a whole new crop of photos. Let 2016 be the year you finally take the time to really learn your camera. Sure the auto mode works some of the time, but in order to really maximize your gear, it takes practice. I'm offering one on one private lessons, as well as group workshops. Whether you are just getting started or are more experienced, there is something for everyone. With the holidays behind us, now is the perfect time to dive in deeper and take control of your camera. As your personal photo mentor, I'm here to help along the way.  

Enjoy,
Chris

Featured Tip:

 

Compose With Your Feet
 

At nearly every scenic vista or photographic landmark, you'll notice a definitive dirt spot where grass once grew. This well-worn spot is the final destination for scores of tourists who shoot the same photo year after year. Rather than following the crowd, take a quick loop around the area and search for unique perspectives. Perhaps it involves lying down, or finding a raised vantage point. Maybe you'll come across an interesting element to add to your foreground. You'll work a bit harder this way, but the effort can lead to unique captures of a heavily photographed site. In his book "You Can Do Anything," author James Mangan wrote, "The narrow mind stays rooted in one spot; the broad mind is free."

2016 Workshop Schedule Coming Soon!
This year promises to be an exciting adventure with both local and international workshops. I'm particularly excited about an October class in Rome and Tuscany. Both are a photographer's paradise and feast for the senses. Stay tuned as details will be announced shortly.
Gear Genie

Each month, I recommend an item that I find useful for photography. It can be anything from a small accessory to a larger piece of camera gear. 

This months featured item:  
Polaroid Snap

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." - Elliott Erwitt
