What you'll learn

When you go for a walk, step into a new space or drive down the street do you notice the light? Do you ever see beautiful light and really think about how, why?  What separates the great painters from the ones you have never heard of?  What separates the great photographers from the good?  Light.  
Early on I realized that light and the play of light and shadow interested me.   My fascination with light led me to Ansel Adams, The Zone System and a love of black and white that is reflected in my favorite images.  
You may not be interested in landscapes and view cameras, but Ansel and his system will improve your bottom line.  Want to find out how?  Come spend a few hours with me and you will leave confident that you can stop dreaming of beautiful light but learn to find and Feel The Light.
