Private Photography Lessons Offered sticky icon

I am now offering private photography lessons. My experience with photography is as follows:

·       42 years of experience.

·       Graduated with High Honors with a degree in Professional Photography from Daytona State College.

·       Worked for 9 years as an industrial/promotional photographer for Pratt & Whitney Aircraft.

·       Owned my own commercial photography studio for several years.

·       Have been published in a major national magazine.

·       Have experience with several different formats in film cameras, including 35mm, 2 ¼ square, 2 ¼ x 2 ¾, and 4 x 5 view cameras.

·       Familiar with all aspects of the chemical darkroom, both color and B&W.

·       Familiar with DSLRs and the digital darkroom (Adobe Photoshop CS5).

·       Have experience with both location and studio lighting. In the studio, I have used electronic flash equipment or natural window light, or a combination of the two.

I can teach beginning, intermediate, or advanced photography skills. This type of training has distinct advantages over a college course or a course on the internet. If you are interested, please contact me, Don Bassett, at dwbassett616@yahoo.com or talk to me at the next meeting of the Gainesville Photo Club. Thanks.

December Club Meeting

The Gainesville Photography Club meets every third Monday of the month at 7:00 pm. at the LifeSouith building located located at 4039 Newberry Road Gainesville, Florida.  To find the meeting room, use the entrance nearest to the rear of the parking lot.

Our December photo club meeting  is also our annual holiday party.  We will meet at 6 pm for a pot luck dinner and conduct our meeting at 7.  The theme for December is a slideshow.  Your slideshow can be on anything you want as long as it is no longer than about 10 minutes.  Some people, for example, show their best pictures of the year, others a slideshow of a recent trip.  There are several good and relative easy to use programs available for making slideshows set to music.  Windows Movie Maker, Windows Picture Story, and FastStone Image Viewer come to mind.  FastStone is by far the easiest to use but does not have as many features as the other programs.  As slideshow files are too large to email, you should bring them to the meeting on a thumb drive.

For dinner, the club will furnish a cold cut platter, condiments, sandwich bread, and soft drinks. You may bring a small side dish for about 8 people. If you wish, you may also bring an alcoholic beverage.  Significant others are also welcome as there should be plenty of food to go around.
