Photography Class

Photography and Photoshop Classes 2014

Save Wednesdays in July and August for two new courses of Photography and Photoshop taught by Jill Flyer, award-winning photo artist (as well as wedding and portrait photographer).   She will teach 4 classes of camera basics and composition combined with Travel Photography (sights, scenes and people portraits). The classes will be held on Wednesdays at 2 p.m., July 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. The cost for all four classes will be $550 pesos. 

For those who are interested in a follow up course on photo adjustments, Jill is giving 3 classes on Photoshop, also on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. on August 6th, 13th and 20th. The first two classes will center on the basic tools of Photoshop and the third will be on getting unusual effects with filters and plug-ins. The cost of this three week course is $450 pesos.  To teach Photoshop, Jill projects the images from her computer onto a large screen TV so everyone can see what she is doing.  Students can bring their laptops and follow along with the projected image.

Don’t forget also about Jill’s Photo Workshop/Tours, a day’s trip to interesting locations in this area and into Guadalajara. For more information on tours and classes (location, enrollment, etc.) and how to get Photoshop installed on your laptop.

Luis Mancera McComick (of Quattro) and I are again shooting weddings and events.  We shoot simultaneously to assure that there are not equipment failures nor illness which would be disastrous for the wedding or event.  I actually have seen contracts that give the photographer an "out" for those reasons. Can you believe that? After all, can you redo a wedding because the photographer has a problem?

Also, with two people shooting, you are assured of not missing important shots and can get different angles of the same scene.   When one is shooting a distance shot, the other can focus in on a portrait.   

And, with our expertise in adjusting and enhancing photos, we guarantee beautiful photos of your wedding or event.

Oct 30, Nov 6, 13, 20 and Dec 4th (no class the week of Thanksgiving).

Portrait Photography. How to photograph, what to photograph, where to photograph, what clothing to wear, what kind of background is good, both formal and informal portraits. This is good for both trying to make artful portraits or just make the photos better that people take of family and friends.

Because a good part of the art of portraiture is adjusting and enhancing the photos later, there will be 2 classes in basic Photoshop. Thus, 3 classes of portraiture, 2 classes to adjust in Photoshop = 5 classes in total (1 1/2 hours each class).

Total cost is $600 pesos.

Dates are Oct 30, Nov 6, 13, 20 and Dec 4th (no class the week of Thanksgiving).

Contact me if you are interested, with either your email and/or phone number and I'll get back to you within a couple of days.
