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.


Sports Photography

These interactive photography opportunities will begin with an hour in the classroom and end on the sidelines. Ssessions are scheduled to coincide with a high school football games, giving you a chance to practice your new skills with your instructor. Topics covered will include shutter speeds, ISO settings, bracketing, exposure control, fast lenses and much more. Bringing a monopod or tripod to class is strongly encouraged! Admission to the football game or transportation is not covered by the class fee and is the participant’s responsibility.
