Designing Your Photographs

by: Lou & Todd Nettelhorst, Nettelhorst Images

Learn to design images, not just take them. This presentation enhances your awareness of the subject, taps into your creativity and teaches you to SEE differently. Lou and Todd Nettelhorst will share images illustrating the concepts presented. Regardless of your knowledge or experience, you’ll be sure to gain a better understanding of how to create the photographs you want.

Free and open to all members and non-members.

If you learn something form this presentation and would like to put in practice then sign-up for the October 13th hands-on workshop with the Nettlehorsts.  To register call 630-206-9588
