 Do you have a love/hate relationship with your camera? Professional photographer John Ashley of Kila, Montana, will demystify what your camera is thinking so that you can work together to make better images, regardless of your skill level.  John also will introduce participants to the "artistic" side of photography, demonstrating simple ways give your pictures more emotional impact.  We will start with an indoor discussion, then head outdoors with our cameras, and end the class with a gentle critique.   This workshop will also help those participants who are taking the Drawing and Painting Horses workshop to create quality photos to use for drawing and painting.  Students must be at least 8 years old.
