Photography Classes
Ages 18+

Bob Splichal, a self-taught, advanced photographer and seasoned photography instructor will take you on a journey through the art form that he is passionate about. Through Bob’s personal experiences and travel he shares his many photos to help simplify your learning of how to better understand and use your camera.

Photography Basics
This photography class is based on a single assumption… no matter how simple or complex your camera is, you shoot mostly in the green “auto” mode. This class will help you understand how the camera functions while using the “auto” mode and how you can take better pictures while using it! Please bring your camera and it’s manual to the class.

The Art of Photography
Learn how to compose great photos in this novice photography class! Do you understand shutter speeds? Do you know how to create width, depth and height in a photo? These are only two of the many topics covered in this class. Bob will cover the “Exposure Triangle” in more depth, so that you will further understand the importance of how shutter speed, ISO and aperture are combined to create a great photo. Please bring your camera and it’s manual to the class.

Macro Photography
Have you ever wondered how to achieve those larger than life photos of a blade of grass with a water droplet or the dimples on a basketball? Learn the basics of macro photography, and how to achieve the ideal aperture setting, in either an indoor or outdoor location (depending on weather). Please bring your camera and it’s manual to the class. A monopod or tripod is also recommended but not required.
