    Join this session for tips on how to use your camera settings to creatively capture nature in a visually interesting way. We will be looking at composition, focus, and colour.

    Many professional offices and places of business have large prints gracing their wall space of things such as fields of flowers, a butterfly perched on a leaf, and a single dew drop on a rose petal. These beautiful images are all around us in nature. It just takes that special "eye" to not only see it but to capture it in a way that will turn that simple little piece of nature into a beautiful piece of art. We will learn how to use different angles, light and shadows, and settings to make subjects pop.

    This is from a series of work I created using human and animal features as a starting point to make new beings. I work in many art mediums but sculpting is what I love the most. Playing with clay is very freeing and it is where I do my most creative work. I rarely have a preconceived notion of what the piece will look like when I begin. So, in this case, I had decided to simply combine some human and rabbit features together. I begin working the clay and my hands take over. Though to some thi
