Advanced Photography is not only a journey of light and lens but also of heart and mind. If you are looking for an outlet to advance your photographic expression, to light your creative spark, and to let your imagination run free, then Advanced Photography is for you.  Accept the invitation and see your photography take flight in CPA’s Advanced Photo classes.

Included in the Advanced membership is the opportunity to participate in the Advanced Salon, in which a small group of Advanced students get together monthly for an intimate discussion of their creativity and photography.

Inspirational Images 2017 is an exploration of Dorothea Lange’s photographic prowess. An iconic photographer of a generation, her thirst for truth and justice are an inspiration to any artist. The class will use Aperture Press’ Dorothea Lange’s Photographs of a Lifetime as a guide to study her vision and technique and to incorporate them into our photography. Dorothea’s voice and compositions are staggering, and her dynamic expression will lead us to a new understanding of what it takes to make not just beautiful images, but powerful ones.

Date: Tuesdays once a month in 2017 from 7:15 – 9:30 pm

Instructor: Mark Comon

Description: Each year we choose an exceptional photographer to inspire us on our creative quest.  We’ll discover how one famous photographer’s work inspires us and changes how we envision and compose our photographs.  Inspirational Images will challenge you to think differently about your pictures and take you to new and exciting places.

To Bring: Pen and paper for taking notes; bring assignments to class each month to discuss them.

Limit of 25 students per session
