This image was taken on a trip to Europe in 2011.  We stayed with a photographer friend of mine and her partner in Barcelona, and we all took a road trip together up the coast.  My friend Michele wanted to take a side trip to this little town and we were most pleased to do so!   Besalú dates back to the middle ages and features cobble stone streets, a walled city, and Romanesque bridge from the 12th century.   I could have wandered there for hours, I personally love history.

Reminder:  last chance to register for the Art of Photography

Trey Ratcliff’s online course, the Art of Photography starts tomorrow (July 31st).  Don’t miss out – for only $149 (save an additional 20% if you use the discount code DiscoverArt20) you get 4 video classes on consecutive evenings July 31st to August 3rd (time depends on your location) and a live Q&A session with Trey.   From the description page about this course some of the things Trey will cover will dispel these common myths:


Don’t let these myths keep you from this unique opportunity to improve your photography.

Myth #1 “An expensive camera is required to take beautiful photos.”

You can take beautiful and interesting photos with any type of camera including the one on your phone. You don’t need a particular camera for this tutorial but if you’re in the market for a new camera I can recommend several at different price points.

Myth #2 “You must know everything about your camera before you begin.”

Cameras today are packed with hundreds of features accompanied by an overly complex manual. You can set the manual aside because I will teach you all you need to know to get started.

Myth #3 “Learning photography is too difficult and complex.”

Terms like F-stop, ISO, and Aperture can be intimidating but the concepts are easy once you get over the initial learning curve. We will take things slow, learning as we go, and by the end you’ll be taking photos that will amaze your friends and family.

This class is for beginner and intermediate photographers.  The topics over the 4 days are:

  • Episode 1: Getting Started
  • Episode 2: Photo Composition
  • Episode 3: Finding Your Own Style
  • Episode 4: Photo Editing
There are also bonus items such as two ebooks by Trey Ratcliff, 20% off additional purchases, and a members only forum.  AND a chance to win one of many prizes!
