Sedona, AZ (September 9, 2011) – For photographer’s who love what they do and want to improve their work the Sedona Arts Center is offering a new 4-part class taught by popular instructor Susie Reed. Her new fall class entitled “Steps to Better Photography” will be held on Sundays 1 – 4 pm and Mondays 6 – 9 pm, September 11 – 19, at the Sedona Arts Center, Gallery Building’s South Studio.
Susie Reed will explore what can be done at photo shoots and after to help create better pictures. She’ll share insights she’s gained from being a fine art and commercial photographer for over 30 years. She’ll demonstrate effective Photoshop tools and explain the correct types and sizes of files to create for print, the Internet and projection, discuss composition, criteria to use for editing, give thought provoking assignments and do individual critiques to help students improve their presentations and ability to see well. Based on Reed’s experience judging several photo contests she’ll provide tips for entering them and discuss what some judges like and don’t like to see. She’ll also discuss the role inspiration; instincts and intuition play in the creative process.
