Moving Forward offers a variety of instructional and entertaining classes. The newest class, Photography, is a blend of both. Students have the opportunity to discover new picture taking techniques, learn about basic photography theory, and find their own artistic eye. This small class is comprised of lectures and discussions, sharing and critiquing, digital photo editing, going to shoot locations in Napa, and printing pictures.
First class project: "TOP 6"
A few of the students in Photography class have been able to attend all of our shoot locations: Downtown Napa, Moore's Landing (The Napa River), Fuller Park, and Skyline Wilderness Park. Each resident was asked to pick their favorite six pictures that they have taken to this point; photos that they are proud of. Some of these pictures were taken at different locations as the students have been inspired to take more photos outside of class. These pictures have yet to be edited digitally. Click on the photos below to see the beginning work of some of our students.
