Doug's Photography Class
Doug with Camera

Thank you for your interest in my upcoming Photography class.  At this point in time I am no longer accepting signups, as the class finished in November 2007.  If you would like to view the recorded video, please consult the front or class schedule page for Google Video links.

Why did I do this?  Because I have had several friends ask me to teach them some basic photography skills, and I am happy to do so.  And sometimes it almost pains me to see the way some people use their cameras when I know that with a little help they can do a lot better.  Can't everybody use a little instruction in how to best take advantage of their cameras?
