Learn or perfect techniques for painting with light, capturing full moon “star bursts,” and zooming for creative images. Instructor Ray Pfortner is an educator and professional photographer whose work focuses on nature, landscapes, environmental issues, and gardens. He has a special interest in coaching new talent.
