What do you do, when you feel you take good pictures, but you are not sure? What do you do, when you feel there has to be a different purpose for you images other than posting them on the internet? What do you do, when you feel your creativity does not have an outlet? The answer is simple: join Bob Killen’s Fine Art Photography Intensive.
The Fine Art Intensive is much more than the name implies. It became a profound and deeply satisfying project that forced this student to think deeply, search hard for the right images, and execute flawlessly. Putting together a series of images fitting a chosen theme was challenging, but with the help of more than teaching—real coaching—from Bob Killen, I learned much more than a normal 'classroom' experience would allow.
If you were to line up the photos I've taken over the last 20 years on sequential order, you could see a very specific photo from which everything that follows shows marked improvement, a fresh style, and identity that no previous photo possesses. That's the first photo I took after learning from David LaNeve and his team at the Center. If you're considering a photo school in Orange County, I highly encourage you to try this one.
Having taken a few classes at the California Center for Digital Arts, I have to say I am more than impressed! (I guess that is the reason I have taken multiple classes.) David La Neve and the other instructors have a passion for photography that is infectious.
I would like to tell you how much I am enjoying your workshops. The lessons I have learned have greatly improved my photography skills and my confidence level. You have renewed my passion for photography!
I highly recommend this series to anyone looking to extend their Fine Art career or start a part time hobby. You won't regret it!
