Photography Classes

I try to take at least one photography class or workshop each year.  There is always a wide array of classes available in many different price ranges.  You can even sometimes find free classes online. 

One of the places that I have gone to take photography classes in our local botanical garden.  Each year they come out with 10-12 different classes taught by some very talented photographers. Here are some pages that I wrote on two of these classes.  On these pages I give you some of the tips that I learned in these classes.
  • Garden Photography is a class that I took at Missouri Botanical Garden.  It was late spring and the irises were in full bloom for the class.  Stop by this page to learn how to take close up photos of these flowers.
  • Photographing Wildflowers  is another class I took through the Missouri Botanical Garden, but this one was held at their Shaw Nature Reserve sight.  Here is a photo I took during that session.
Kim Manley Ort is a Photographer and fellow Squidoo Lensmaster who loves sharing her photography knowledge.  On this page she shares with us what she learned at a photography workshop of Visual Design


I am taking a six week class on nature photography during April and May.  I plan on sharing the tips that I learn each Thursday on this blog.  Stay tuned for more.

  3. Thank you for the helpful photography tips! I haven't taken a photography class in ages. I must look around my local area and see what is available. Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. We all get to benefit from your ongoing lifelong learning journey. I so admire those who keep on stretching themselves and their talent. I really need to push some photographic boundaries. Thanks for inspiring constant growth. I'm a big fan of Kim Manley Ort (and, of course, you). :-) Looking forward to seeing what you create in your new class.
