Taking Steps to
Inspire, Equip and
Educate Today's Photographers

I attended the Professional Photographers of Washington, Inc seminar last weekend. It was an outstanding event and the speakers were great. I came for the drone presentation which was very useful for me. I have been flying drones and making videos for a couple of years. Just documenting my travels and interesting things along the way. I have just started using primer pro to audit my videos. You can see more of my videos by googling Sam Ceballos.

The Bonus Night Class on Saturday, Oct 14 has been finally formalized and here is the skinny:

Light Wars

The forces of shadow and light clash at night, and capturing their show is both beautiful and rewarding. However, it can be tough and your equipment will easily mislead you. In this class, you will learn how to bend the forces of shadow and light to manifest new visions. You will learn how to capture night images with confidence, and with intent towards post-processing. We will also cover the key ingredients to bring out and make your images shine.  This class is both lecture and hands-on – so bring your camera and bring a tripod. 

Structure of Class
