CLASSES - 2019-2020


Online Courses

The Viewpoint Photo Club offers several classes per year on subjects related to photography.

Next year we are planning two courses on post processing. Cynthia Gledhill will be teaching classes on Photoshop Elements and Louise Rancourt will be teaching classes on Photoshop. Rita Taylor will also be offering several classes on Beginning Photography. These these classes will be taught in November as well as January of the next year. As post processing becomes more important each year and we are greatful to both of these ladies for offering to teach these courses.

We would like to set up an interactive course for one or more of the exhibition categories next year. There would be three sessions including (1) instruction, (2) a photoshoot and (3) a critiquing session to review the photos taken on the shoot.  If you would be willing to take a lead on one of the following topics please contact Rita or Paul before the fall: Old and Abandoned, Night Photography, Animals, or Birds.
