Would you like to make more intriguing travel images?   Now is your chance!   In this class you will learn basic, but simple, techniques that will help you become a better photographer.  Entering the confusing world of exposure, f-stops and shutter speeds you’ll better understand these concepts and learn how they can help you improve your photos.

    If you have further questions, please contact Barbara LaFleur at blafleur1003@gmail.com.

    The digital photography revolution served to rekindle Brenda’s longstanding interest in travel and family photography.   More than a decade ago she began a journey to become more than a just recreational photographer.  That journey has included numerous on-line classes and location seminars with nationally known photographers.  She enjoys nature, landscape and macro photography.   Living in Southwest Louisiana provides countless opportunities to pursue those areas of interests.  She particularly enjoys sharing the magic and charm of The Gulf Coast with those who view her work.     In addition to teaching digital photography in the Lake Charles area, she has also taught photo editing techniques using Photoshop and Lightroom software.
