Congratulations!

Thank you for being part of my class. I have enjoyed teaching, working and learning along with each of you. I hope this class has inspired you to see the world differently and has enhanced your artistic abilities.

I encourage each and every one of you to continue your creative journey and to take a moment each day to appreciate and enjoy the subtle visual moments you see. Make a picture if the moment speaks to you and share your unique vision of the world through the art of photography.
