Photography Classes in Dallas
Photography is a casual hobby for some and a life-long passion for many. The advent of digital photography has brought with it almost unlimited creative possibilities. Digital cameras can be wonderful tools, but they can also be intimidating!
This is the Spot for photography classes in Dallas and you are invited to select a class or photo workshop to match your interest and skill level. These are not courses about just learning how to operate these little complex, computerized machines. Photography is about seeing, about creating beautiful and interesting images that you can appreciate for yourself and enjoy showing to others. The aim of each class is to enable you to take better photographs, to create more images you can be proud of.
Classes are held in the shooting area of a professional working studio. The instructor will have a camera linked to a computer and video projector so the class can follow along with test shots, menus, settings, editing etc. Students find this very helpful. See some of their comments on the reviews page. Equipment, lighting, sets, props and backgrounds will be set up as necessary.
