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

Fireworks and Handel from Disneyland

From fireworks to Handel – I created this eye-catching video with images from Disneyland fireworks and set it to the rousing music of Handel – La Rejouissance from the Royal Fireworks music.

This is my favorite image from the event:

Fireworks from Disneyland

Capturing fireworks images at Disneyland in Anaheim, California was the highlight of our spring Novice field session. We didn’t have to pay admission to Disneyland to get the best view of the fireworks. You can park in the Downtown Disney parking lot which is free for three hours and walk to the Mickey & Friends Parking Structure. Because of spring break the park and surrounding area was packed with visitors. So, I opted to pay $16.00 to park in the structure.

We had the best view from the top level.

You can join me at the next Novice Photographer class at聽Santiago Canyon College/Community Services聽this summer.
