The Connect2Classes team is taking workshops from their top course providers and seeing who earns their stamp of approval. They know that learning new skills is a great investment, but also know it is hard to find the time. Their series, Connect2Classes Tested, helps find great classes that are worth your time.

Most recently, Michael Duarte-Pedrosa, a member of the Connect2Classes team, tried out one of their most popular classes, 7 Steps to Better Photography.

Hudson’s Photo Workshops were created by Bruce Hudson, a nationally recognized master craftsman photographer, author and educator. He has created a collection of workshops designed for all skill levels with topics relevant to today’s photo enthusiast.

Hudson’s Photo Workshops has one goal: “to give its students photographic education that goes beyond the basics and let’s them take control of their camera to maximize creative potential,” says Bruce Hudson.

7 Steps to Better Photography gives the amateur photographer a basic knowledge of the art and science of photography along with a little knowledge about the functionality of your digital camera.

“Beyond the ubiquitous selfie, we have come to appreciate how convenient and utilitarian our cell phone cameras can be,” said Duarte-Pedrosa. “However after a class with Bruce, your affection for your old or new digital non-phone camera will be rekindled.”

“You will learn the functions you are able to control on your digital camera in manual mode along with some of the basic elements of good photography like light and direction, composition, perspective, and camera angle,” shares Duarte-Pedrosa. “This combination of form and function will help you capture incredible pictures, beyond what you may have thought possible.”

“It was evident after hearing each student’s motivations for taking the class, that we are all underutilizing the power of our cameras,” Duarte-Pedrosa continued.

The class is fun, well organized and takes the participants through an easy to follow seven-step progression to better photography. Beyond the learning, the entertainment value Hudson provides throughout the class may find you at times feeling like you are in the studio audience of your new favorite late-night TV show – one that’s suitable for all ages.

If you want to learn how to take better pictures while unlocking some of the mysteries of your camera and would welcome a little fun in the process, attending one of the many Hudson’s Photo Workshops is time very well spent.
