Creative talents, like houseplants and celebrities, wilt without proper attention.

One-day classes are held on either Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

Mary Gulino, owner and principal photographer at My Artist Loft, teaches shutterbugs to snap stunning shots and then polish those pics during classes suited to any experience level or type of camera. Customers can use a photo of their own, a provided picture, or an Anne Geddes calendar to practice on during a class in Photoshop skills, which enlightens students on use of the toolbar and special effects as well as improving harsh facial lines or lighting. In the portrait-photography class, Mary instructs pupils on using all of a camera’s settings, composing an image and employing the best possible lighting.

The walking workshop at the beach focuses on scenic shots, leading snap shooters on a sandy sojourn along Laguna’s picturesque coast for salty, hands-on practice with the shore’s colors, compositions, and photogenic sea monsters. A course on flash use and available light addresses how to harness and manipulate both natural illumination and light poured out of a can, and the digital-photography workshop teaches users about different settings on their camera and how to use a tripod.

Customer Reviews

Mary - My Artist Lot was amazing! Even with less than perfect weather and between the light rain drops, she gave us a lot of information and knew about all the different cameras that people brought to the class. The 4 hours flew by. I will defiantly take another class. Mary is a great no pressure teacher and as she said "loves the squeaky wheel people that have a lot of questions or the same questions." She really wanted us to get-it! Great experience!
