Will be Teaching Photography at Emory Continuing Education in January

Photography by David Diener at

Hello everyone I hope that you have enjoyed your holidays and New Year.  I wanted to let you know that while I may be a Atlanta wedding photographer at I am also a photography instructor at Emory's Continuing Education program in the evenings.  I on one of the instructors for the Digital Photography Program.  You can find out more about the program at:

Here is a brief description of the program:

"Our Digital Photography certificate program is suitable for both hobbyists looking to take better photos as well as entrepreneurs wanting to start taking photos professionally. The courses in this program cover how to take better photos by identifying the elements that constitute good composition. Students will also learn essential workflows for photographers and how to use both Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop."

Here is a brief description of the Class:
"If you feel that you are not taking full advantage of the features offered by your digital camera, this is the course for you. Composition, selective focus, saturated colors and proper exposure all combine to produce images which make the best use of digital photography's tools. Digital technology has changed the field of photography more rapidly and dramatically than any previous technical advance. Ideal for the enthusiastic hobbyist or a serious amateur, we will focus on how the operation of digital cameras differs from their film counterparts through a combination of class lecture and photographic assignments. Learning how the camera capabilities apply to actual photo-taking and the impact of megapixel, file compression, and print versus email output will greatly enhance your success in photography. We’ll also begin exploring the more complex aspects of photography, such as lighting, composition, use of flash, color and depth of field. You will share your work in class to enhance the class discussion. You are encouraged to delay the purchase of supplementary equipment until after class discussions."

I hope that you can come out and expand your photography skills.  Everyone will learn some new photography skills or sharpen the ones that you already have.  You will be challenged!  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me at and I will be happy to help in any way that I can.

Thanks so much for visiting!!!
