A BIT OF HISTORY After being raised in the Boston area of Massachusetts and owning several cameras by the age of twenty I discovered wedding photography. I loved it's challenges and constantly meeting new people. Soon, wedding photography became a passion, sometimes photographing three per weekend, working with several studios whose business was only weddings with up to 30-40 per weekend!
Eventually, "With This Ring…" wasestablished and I soon became known as the 'wedding specialist'.Unlike photos of today, it was imperative each click got it right on the first shot. Then, you waited patiently for 'proofs' to see how lucky you were! However, even with today's instantly viewing the LCD screen many 'at the moment' wedding photos cannot be repeated.
When I arrived in southern Iowa in the 90's my life changed. I soon met Priscilla, now my wife. She thought I just dabbled in photography; a bit here and there. After helping a local photographer at a wedding (using film) Priscilla discovered my talent and said, "You took these photos…??!! Why don't you……? You should…", etc., etc. I told her I just did 'my thing'. However, it was interesting that the young photographer remarked that I probably had forgotten more than he knew about photography. I didn't think I was that old!
Now this was at a time in my life when settling down was on the horizon. Wrong!Priscilla encouraged me to add a studio onto the house and in 2001 Tyme Photography was born. It did bring in 100's of weddings, families, pets, business portraits and high school seniors.
My first DSLR arrived in 2002 with a hugelearning adventure to go with it. Challenging it was, with early technology, for digital images to match the quality of film images. After photographing my first wedding (digitally) there wasn't any doubt the good old film days were gone forever. Those first digital images met all expectations! That brings us to … THE PRESENTDAY Tyme Photography now exists by catering to the education void with four different classes in progress from the basics to pro level. If you want to photograph scenics to portraits, sports to weddings or using flash and natural light you'll learn to take pro type images and have more fun because the secret is in controlling the end results .
PHOTO CLASSES Photography is relatively easy to learn. The challenge starts when you try to apply those techniques to a digital camera through the trial and error method or with an assortment of literature. Each class is designed in a systematic progression. The basics begin with the how, whenandwhy's of using camera functions. Pre requisites are listed in each description section. See about the classes. SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE No matter your age or experience level, seeking a different niche or just a better understanding of the digital mysteries of cameras, it offers something for everyone. Nothing is more gratifying than photographing a scene and printing it to 30 x 40 (or larger) for your living room. Try a class and progress as far as you like. You'll discover just how easy photography has evolved with today's technology!
