It is often said about a photograph - you do not take a photo, you make a photo! The process starts with an idea in the mind, which is then executed with the help of the tools of the medium: a camera, choice of a suitable lens, lighting, composition, etc. With training and experience this process becomes intuitive.
Welcome to my Common Time page. Through my classes I endeavor to share some of these tools and techniques with you, that will help you improve your skills as a photographer and realize your creative ideas with greater control and confidence.
