One of my goals this year was to take a photography workshop. After looking some over and trying to fit my schedule to the ones I felt I could do and afford, I realized it was not going to happen. I did have a backup plan. Last fall I found a photographer who does online classes. Kent Weakley, an accomplished professional photographer and all around nice guy, has blended an active community with ways to teach others how to enjoy photography. I have been eyeing his Night Photography eClasses for months but did not want to do one in the middle of winter. Kent does not have such issues living in Florida. 🙂
Recently, I reviewed all my night images and found I had very few night photos taken of nature subjects. The Super Moon and the photo above are about all I have in my library. Kent had what I was looking for. His next Night Photography eClass featuring Mother Nature starts in one week (April 8, 2011). The price is very affordable and is followed up with another Night Photography eClass about Man-Made subjects starting on April 22, 2011. Though I have a lot of experience with Man made night subjects with all my visits to Walt Disney World, the class will be stretching my skills with light painting and abstract lessons.
I will be reviewing both of these classes for you. If you are interested in joining me, check out the links which have details of each class, videos where Kent gives you a rundown of each class and click here to read what past students think of Kent and his classes. There is a special price for signing up for both classes but you would need to do that by tomorrow (April 2, 2011) for the upcoming class. Kent runs these a few times a year so you will have other opportunities to take these or other classes he teaches.
After a month of Close Up Photography subjects hope you are ready for lots of night photography!
