Student discovers new passion

Julie,
I thoroughly enjoyed the photography class [Expanded Introduction to Digital Photography, Santiago Canyon College/Community Services, Spring 2017].
I think I may have found a new passion!
My boyfriend is in Afghanistan I sent him my happy photos and he called the last 2 days and we talked photography. 馃檪 It’s so much fun.
Thank you,
Lolita MacGregor

Virtual Classes in Digital Photography To the Rescue

Digital photography virtual classes…

Have you ever wanted some private photography tutoring, but couldn’t spare the time in your busy schedule to travel to the instructor, have the lesson, then travel to your next destination? Do you wish you could just book a 30-minute session to ask some very specific questions? Do you want quick answers and don’t want to spend time in a semester-long photography class? I think you will find virtual classes a real boon to your busy lifestyle.

In the same town, in the same state, around the globe…Technology to the rescue!

We have been working with Skype, Google Hangouts, and TakeLessons.com Classroom to conduct our virtual classes in digital photography for some time now. The process is getting better and better and is really a lot of fun. It is cost-effective for the students and for the teacher, too. Being able to share the computer screen is essential and these online programs are easy to use.

The virtual environment is quite easy to create. You just need a computer with a built-in camera and microphone (or you can make those purchases separately…buy, why would you?) or an iPad/tablet, or even an iPhone/cell phone.

I will help you design the photography training that you are looking for and deliver just what you need at a convenient time in your schedule.
