You’ll learn about lenses, the elements of composition, textures, and depth of field. Find out about working the scene, or “walking around your subject”, and about photographing people. You’ll start to see “good light”, get better sunset images and night shots.

Darlene knows what she’s talking about and helped me with concepts I’d heard about but not really grasped before.– Olivia P. Australia

Darlene is not only a photographer, she is a teacher.– Michael S.

I found it valuable. The homework was particularly useful if only to encourage me to get out and try the very tasks discussed which helps to solidify the lesson and identify areas I thought I understood, but in practice didn’t.” – Dena D. California, USA

I learned the importance to paying attention to background and lighting. This understanding will make my photo taking more intentional and I will “create” better photos. I feel more confident about my abilities as photographer.– Sheila K. Illinois, USA
