Understand Photography has so many facets. I feel privileged to have taken part in so many opportunities and will continue to do so. I have been active in their classes since Feb 2012 to present. They offers classes to expand your photography skills, excursions to practice your learned skills and editing instruction. I have been to the Everglades to learn better wild life photography with an excellent instructor from Understand Photography. We learned the proper settings for photographing wild life standing, swimming and flying. I participated in a boat tour of the Ten Thousand Islands to capture shore life. The sunsets are incredible in the Naples area.
Capturing a breath taking sunset while on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico while the white pelicans, brown pelicans, gulls and turns danced in the sky was an experience I will never forget. Most recently I have participated in two different classes to learn night photography through downtown Naples. Seeing it "snow" every fifteen mins in the historic downtown area was something to experience. Many of their instructors were on hand to give advice on the Nighttime Holidays Downtown class.
Peggy Farren, the owner, has assembled a top notch group of instructors who each have their own specialty. If you are going to be in the Naples area, I highly recommend looking through their list of photography classes in the classroom as well as educational field trips. In such a unique sub tropical environment there is so much to see do and learn.
For the portrait photographers, they have classes for in studio and on location. Beach photography can be so difficult, yet they break it down to make it easier for beginners to professionals who want to gain additional skills.
