Even in the digital era, the zone system can still be used as a guide to exposure.
I teach a number of different methods for obtaining the desired exposure.
I am available to teach and make recommendations for specialized photography using natural light or fill flash.
Image design and composition may have a specific goal in mind. The purpose of a photograph is often to communicate information, produce a reaction or redirect attention.
Field work in digital photography is the best way to learn about composition... "Look up, look down, look all around."
The utilization of the right image and the right message can communicate more and leave a more lasting impact than an hour of video.
I will teach you exactly why black and white photography is still a very viable advertising and communication medium.
Are you getting everything from your camera and lens that you expected?
Are your images sharp and bright with accurate color?
Perhaps a short course is in order.
I am available for a in-depth study of Photoshop tools and their application to Digital Photography.
These tools, combined with image layers and image masking can produce very powerful results in Photoshop.
