Upcoming Fine Art Classes
Fine Art Department
Instructor: Larry R Wagner
We will focus on the four components of doing that:
The class will give the student practice in integrating these four components while photographing scenes, people and still lives. You will do portraits using natural and strobe lighting, some street photography and landscape photography in beautiful Mendocino. We will review your photos with the class and learn how well you are doing in meeting the big four.
