Becoming a Better Photographer

Robert Thayer

Camden National Bank, State Route 102, Town Hill.
What makes a photograph worth hanging on the wall or sharing on Facebook? The first step in becoming a better photographer is to recognize what makes a good image. Next you apply that knowledge to your own work. As you develop the skills to capture this vision, you will become a more satisfied artist. In this course, we will look at the elements that make a good image. The course will study the works of the masters and analyze each student’s own images. Come prepared to share photographs and to give and accept constructive criticism.
