Great photographs are created through a technique that applies artistic design within a medium that relies on technical precision. Local artist and lifelong photographer, Tom Tibbitts, will help you take your photos to a new level. Come learn the science behind artistic design, elements of light exposure, contrast, depth, composition’s rule of thirds, or Fibonacci’s Ratio as the Golden Mean. The science behind great photographs is the ability to know the rules, when to follow them, and when to break them.
