First Class in a Series of Photo Workshops & Classes

This past Wednesday night was the second night in a four night photo class that I’m teaching for beginning photographers at the Yellow Door Studio in Fredericksburg. Thirteen students have survived f stops and shutter speeds and so far no brains have exploded from information overload but then again, we’ve just begun to delve into composition, depth of field and focus so there’s still time. Cleanup in studio one….. This summer I plan to teach an advanced photo class and a lighting workshop here in Fredericksburg and a travel workshop in Antigua Guatemala during the Christmas holiday. More fun to come I’m sure.Ruleofthirds.001Ruleofthirds.004Ruleofthirds.002 Ruleofthirds.003 Ruleofthirds.005 Ruleofthirds.006

Going the Mirror-Less Route

A little over 3 years ago I made the decision to switch from the Canon full frame 5D camera system to Micro 4/3. Yep, all the big, heavy Canon bodies and heavy & expensive L Glass had to go. Why ? For me it was simple, I was tired of lugging the Canon system around, I had lost the desire to shoot for myself because I no longer enjoyed dragging that DSLR system around. I found it to be a chore and quite simply, I was no longer inspired. I had waited for Canon to come out with a smaller 4/3 system but finally realized they had no interest in creating a smaller system for travel & documentary photographers. So, I sold off all the Canon gear and purchased Olympus OMD-EM bodies and pro lenses. I have to say it’s been a whole new wonderful experience. I’m now enjoying photography again, I’m jazzed about shooting. I carry a body and lens with me everywhere and find myself shooting photos that I would and could never have shot when I had the Canon system. If you’re on the fence about making the switch get in touch with me and let me give you the many reasons why you should consider making the move to the Olympus Micro Four Thirds Mirror-Less system.
