Join photographer and author, David Perry, in a playful and plainspoken introduction to the wonders of your iPhone’s camera, as well as a simple path to mastery of it. In this four session class, transform from merely owning a cell phone with a nice camera in it to mastering an amazing camera that also happens to be a miniature darkroom, internet portal and cell phone. Learn how to make your camera focus where you want it, how to save pictures, how to crop and beautify them with a few inexpensive, easy-to-master apps, how to add words to them, where your pictures live in your iPhone/iPad, and finally, how to share them seamlessly with your friends and the world. You are smarter than your smartphone camera. You just don’t know it yet.

CLASS: Photography Lighting IBellevue College/Fall Quarter: December 1, 3, 5, 8

This class will give you a solid understanding and practice with how to leverage and shape light to enable you to bring out the best of your subject and to elevate your photography beyond capturing the light to artistically “writing with light”. Learn the facts and qualities of light and their effects on your images by observing, measuring, modifying, and shaping light. Practice controlling light ratios, contrasts, and compositions with available light, on-camera flash, accessory speedlights, and continuous lighting. Experience the excitement of taking creative control of the light into your hands to beautifully showcase a variety of subjects.

Northwest Flower & Garden Show


Slide Lecture: In The Garden of His Imagination. Wednesday, February 17, 2016. 5:45pm. 

A garden is truly a world set apart, a painted canvas meant to elicit a response. Gardens affect their visitors in many unique ways. Join David as he shares a collection of personal images, offering insights about how one might sit with a garden, see deeply into it and occasionally, enter into profound conversation with it. Learn how David treats his garden visits as open-ended meditations, sharing captured glimpses of them as questions asked; visual poems awaiting a response from the viewer.

Some photographs can pull us instantly through time and space into moments we would never be able experience otherwise. They invest us in those moments, infer their meanings and help us relate. When they manage that, when they somehow transport us past the mere notion of ‘what’ and into those deliciously nuanced realms of when, why, and how, photos become far more than image alone. They become ‘story.’ Give yourself the gift of becoming a better storyteller. Join master photographer/storyteller, David Perry as we explore the ways that imbuing pictures with story makes them more powerful, more fascinating and ever so much more memorable.
