Serendipity Studio orients photography acolytes with the capabilities of their digital or DSLR cameras, allowing students to nab photos of the outdoors or amplify their artistic repertoire in an indoor classroom setting. Camera-operations courses teach students the anatomy and basic functions of their cameras, with topics that include shutter speed, aperture, or alternate crafty uses for lens caps. Lighting courses lead shutterbugs to indoor and outdoor locales, and the wedding-photography class entails a field trip to a local church.
Nashville at night leads pupils around the low-lit metropolis, and in the digital-art course, students take photographed images and transform them into oil paintings, watercolors, or highly intentional coffee stains. Instructor Paul Bartoszek boasts more than 10 years of experience, with much of his work available for perusal online. Upcoming class dates are listed here. For sessions beyond these dates, please inquire with the studio.
Photographers Paul and Sheri Bartoszek have a knack for capturing images at exactly the right moment, whether they’re snapping shots of a newly wedded couple slowly waltzing across the dance floor or shooting film of a musician as his fingers fly up and down a guitar amid thousands of screaming fans. No matter if they’re in the Serendipity Studio or the brand-new downtown Nashville studio, the photographers strive to take pictures worthy of placement among their other works, many of which hang in galleries across the United States and Canada. They then develop prints, which can framed or pinned proudly to clothes, and supply clients with high-resolution digital images.
In addition to snapping their own shots, the shutterbugs teach photography classes. Students learn how to operate point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras and how to get the most out of natural or artificial lighting in various indoor and outdoor locations, such as the square in Murfreesboro or a doghouse.
