Jim Earls, a past president of the Arizona Professional Photographers Association, and his crew of camera wielders have snapped images for more than 25 years and memorialized 1,500 weddings, and their accumulated photon-capturing expertise shines through in three-hour workshops. Pupils learn to fine-tune their images during this crash course in Photoshop, a graphics-editing program that allows users to retouch, resize, and crop photos without having to finger-paint on their computer monitor. After mastering the basics, shutterbugs enhance their images by toying with contrast, hues, and coloring techniques such as splashing photos in black-and-white or sepia tones. Instructors limit class sizes to 10 or fewer students, allowing for plentiful individual attention and ensuring everyone has plenty of stage time in the graduation musical at the end of the workshop.

Jim Earls Fine Portraiture

In the more than 25 years Jim Earls has spent behind the lens, he has photographed over 1,500 weddings and countless families, high-school graduates, and children. A former president of the Arizona Professional Photographers Association, Earl also uses his portrait-snapping prowess to teach digital-photography classes. Beginners’ sessions instruct students on how to create quality images by manipulating camera settings, exposure, natural light, and flash. Alternatively, classes on computer and camera functions give step-by-step instruction on how to navigate cameras and upload images that can be edited, printed out, and used to wallpaper a bathroom. Earls leads both indoor and outdoor photography shoots, which help students become more versatile photographers by working among studio settings as well as natural backdrops.
