Many of you that have taken a Beginning Photo Course have asked for an advanced course, and after much planning, I added an Advanced Digital Photography Course.
Want to learn how to use your camera? Maybe you already have a good understanding of your camera and want to
learn Adobe Photoshop or
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom? Perhaps you're interested in exploring your creativity, or learning about studio lighting?
firefly53 studios, in Pembroke, Massachusetts has a photography school run by award-winning photographers Stephanie Grenadier and Tim Waite.
From absolute beginner, to advanced photographer or artist, firefly53 offers a range of classes and workshops focused on getting you the
training you need to take the photos you want, and maybe even the photos you don't yet know you want! With years of experience teaching technical
topics, creative classes, and photography and software related classes, Tim Waite and Stephanie Grenadier bring loads of hands-on knowledge and
present it in fun and sometimes unusual ways.
If you're a newcomer to photography, you have two options to learn more about your camera and photography:
The "Manual Mode" course, listed above, is for photographers with DSLRs, MILCs, or similar cameras that offer the
photgrapher full manual control. The "Compact Camera & Phone" course is geared toward photographers that don't own a DSLR or MILC, or
who prefer to "travel light", and don't want to carry a larger camera.
Not sure which one of the Beginning Photo options to choose? Maybe this page will help!
Photographers that have already taken a Beginning Digital Photography course, or who feel completely comfortable shooting in
full manual mode, may be interested in continuing to develop their skills with the Advanced Digital Photography Course.
If you're already comfortable with your camera and you want to explore more creative avenues, then the firefly53 team also offers several classes and
workshops around manipulating your photographs. From more traditional photo development, like using the features and functionality offered in the
Lightroom Basics Course, to more advanced photo manipulation, using Adobe Photoshop, we can help you expand your creative vision.
Workshops that target specific styles of photography are also available, with new offerings being added regularly. For example, you can learn some essential
Studio Lighting techniques, or explore the fascinating world of Macro Photography.
Photographers new to Photoshop will find our Intro to Photoshop Workshop useful in helping to understand the
basics of working with Photoshop. The next step is to learn about some of Photoshop's really powerful features, such as layers and masking, in our
Photoshop Layers Workshop.
Adobe's new Creative Cloud subscription system puts Photoshop within the reach of almost everyone; Photoshop is no longer just for professionals! You can read a
quick article about Creative Cloud and how it can help you gain access to the most popular image editing software in the world.
No matter your skill level, Stephanie and Tim jointly guide a Creative Photography class, where you will explore your own vision, and learn
how to improve your photography in a way that interests you. Through group and individual exercises and assignments, we work with you to spark your
own creativity, and to help you develop your own artistic style.
