After teaching at Wild Acres visiting artist retreat for Ringling this past summer they saw I did something different and approached me to teach a class using my approach. It is really a Special Effects and Painting With Light photography class. I am so excited to get started.

Ringling Fall Catalogue
Color tells a story.  It uplifts, depresses, instills fear, and inspires wonder. Take your photography to the next level by learning how to consciously use color and historical reference to evoke mood and emotion, create balance and contrast, and convey opposition and harmony in your photographs.  All skill levels welcome.  Prior digital photography experience desirable. (Certificate Program Code: PE, FE)
