Summer 2015 Photography Classes
by Bonnie Tate @ CityArts Co-op
I’m excited to be teaching these classes this summer…more to come!
June 9 – July 7, 2015
Creative Photography for Beginners A hands on class for learning about camera operation. Start from scratch and become familiar with your camera’s most important features, and how they translate into the photograph. This course covers ISO, aperture & shutter speed, light metering, focus, focal length and more. Lessons include outdoor practice. Camera required. *Best for DSLRs or camera with “Manual” mode but all cameras welcome! 5 week course, meets Tuesdays evenings, 5-7pm. $150
June 10 – July 8, 2015
The Master’s Eye Develop your eye and learn some photography history by looking at the masters. Each week a new photographer will be presented and we will discuss how they made their mark with style, lighting, composition and other techniques – and how they achieved the shots from a technical standpoint. Your weekly assignment will be to make your own photograph drawing from their style. An idea generating class that will challenge you! Recommended for those who have a good understanding of their camera. Camera required. 5 week course, meets Wednesday evenings, 5pm – 7pm. $150
June 26 & July 10, 2015 (choose one) 10am – 1pm
Camera-less Photography for Kids Travel back to the early days of photography when the first pictures were made without cameras! Cyanotypes (also called sunprints) are exposed using sunlight and produce a deep blue print. Kids practice artful composition, see the photographic process in action, develop their images, and take home one of a kind prints. Bring small objects to arrange (feathers, lace, flowers, trinkets). A 3 hour workshop, ages 6-14. $25 per child.
August Evenings, 2015 (Dates TBA)
Night Photography An exciting niche that comes alive with experimentation and photographic “rule breaking!” Practice the techniques and camera settings that make great nightshots. Try hand-held, long exposures, and painting with light in a variety of local spots. Tripod and camera required. 5 week course, meets one night per week. $150

Today (11/25) I’m having my own little day-after-Thanksgiving sale in my shop: buy one print and get a second one free. This applies to all color and black and white photographs, including framed work (but not photo blocks or notecards). Just tell me the title of your second print in the message to seller box at checkout.
Questions? Send me a message ~ firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact button in my Etsy shop.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
It was a wonderful surprise on Saturday to be looking through the summer edition of Shots and find my photo. I submitted some work months ago without a response so I sure didn’t expect to see To Market on page 6.
Shots is an excellent fine art photography journal and this is the 25th Anniversary Edition. I’ve been subscribing on and off since 2000, so this made my week! Thanks to the editor Russell Joslin.
