Last chance for photography classes

Photographers interested in one of Peninsula College’s continuing education photography classes in Sequim have a last chance. Budget cuts force discontinuation of the classes summer quarter, but two are available this spring:


• “How to Create Great Photographs” meets from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 11, and continues for five weeks, with a Saturday “field” workshop at John Wayne Marina. Cost of the class is $92. Instructor Randall Tomaras has more than 40 years’ experience as a professional photographer.


• “The Qualities of Light” meets from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 6, and continues for two weeks.

The class covers recognizing and controlling the qualities of light, outdoors or in the studio. Tomaras explains how photographers start with the qualities of light to create elements of art, form principles of art, create emotion and motivate action. Cost of the class is $49.


To sign up, call Peninsula College at 452-9277, then press 1.


Call Tomaras at 461-2202 if you are placed on the waiting list or if the class is full.
