The Deal

  • $39 for a 2.5-hour photo walking tour with an 8"x10" print and a PDF file containing photography tips (a $75 value)

No more than 15 students roam about 8–10 overlooked yet interesting sites in Lawrenceville or Roswell, snapping pictures with their digital or film cameras or smartphones. As they do so, guides teach them how to compose shots, including isolating and framing subjects, the rule of thirds, finding shapes, shooting in monochrome, and more. Students then choose their favorite shots to be immortalized in a print; they also receive a PDF with additional photo tips. Classes run on Saturday and begin September 28.

Studio 2.8

“So many people go through life looking at things without really seeing them,” muses Mary Buck, founder of Studio 2.8. Her mission as a teacher is twofold: to help her pupils see things and to help them share what they see with others. “Photography lets you paint with light,” she tells her classes, “but you have to go in with a vision.” She gives her pupils the tools to realize their visions during workshops that delve into all facets of digital photography, from the basics of adjusting f-stop to the advanced skills needed to capture a delicious smell of pixels.

It isn't surprising that Buck is a photography teacher; photography runs in her blood. Both of her siblings and her sister-in-law are skilled photographers, and she's been aiming her own lens at subjects since she was just 18. As a professional, her talent for catching dimples and laughter has led to portraits that families can pass down to new generations or Earth-conquering aliens. Seventeen years after starting her own studio, her passion for the art form has only grown, and her enthusiasm for sharing what she calls “that fire in my belly” with her students still burns strong.
