Subject matter If you have favorite photos you would like to work from please have them enlarged to 8 x 10's before you come. Keep it simple (we do not want to get into alot of detail). The photo will be used as a point of departure....This class will be about being inventive with space and color. Don't bog yourself down with complicated subject matter. Each student is carried as an individual.... if you like you can work from a combination of photos to learn about creating good composition.
