About My Photography
My Photography Workshops and Tours allow me to share my experience and knowledge in photography with those interested in both learning more about photography and working in this exciting medium. The cutabovephoto.com range from basic through advanced photography, and cover all aspects of digital imaging including image visualization, working with the camera, metering and proper exposure, using Photoshop in the computer, and printing. All workshops utilize lectures, discussions, field trips, and demonstrations assuring full understanding by the participants. The Tours go to extremely photogenic places where we learn much of what is presented in the workshops and learn to apply it in real and exciting locations. The focus of each workshop and tour is to immerse ourselves in photography, learn from each other, and have fun doing it.
