About This Study And Practice Group

A working group based on a photography class that Sam teaches in Washington, DC.

By participating in this group you’ll get familiar with what we do as photographers. We’ll go through the process of seeing something to photograph to what we do with our camera and our mind to create the photograph. In addition, we’ll think about the intent of composition and camera operation. While applying thought to what we do as photographers during your participation in this group, you’ll automatically realize the best picture that you can make and then you’ll make it. You’ll learn by doing.
