The Love of Teaching

As the years have passed, I find that there are few things I love as much as teaching photography.

It’s fun and interesting, and, like last night, full of “ah ha!” moments for all involved.

Last night we had a great golden hour, followed by an even better blue hour, followed by a fun indoor existing-light session.

We then finished the night with some after-dark light painting with flash and flashlights.

We all had so much fun we actually ran ten minutes long.

My crew takes time to set up under a pear tree. It yielded the best photographic fruits.

As we stayed out during the blue hour, we came across this tree and used it as a compositional element to create strong leading lines. We were very happy with it.

  1. Hi, Richard. I just wanted to let you know that if I still lived in Oklahoma, I would definitely take your class. I remember when you took me out and showed me some of your secrets back when I first started my journalism career. I learned more from you that day than I did over the course of a semester-long photography class at ECU!

    You’re the best!!!
