Introduction to Photography


with Arend Thibodeau, RSU 54/MSAD 54 Adult and Community Education

What is the rule of thirds? Why are my images boring? Why does my friend take the same picture as I do and her picture looks better? Bring your camera to class and learn how to make a great image rather than simply take a photograph. We will focus on what constitutes a great image and how to think about composition, lighting and subject matter. We will compare and contrast work by contemporary artists in order to understand how to develop our own unique statements as photographers.

Bring your digital camera or portable device with camera to this workshop.

It’s not just a cliche - what you think about, you really do bring about. In this interactive class we will discuss how to clearly direct your energetic thoughts and how adding in the element of fire is an effective way to manifest things in your life. Participants will learn: various candle colors what to use them for how to prepare your candle for manifesting when the best times are in which to burn your specific candles We will each create 2 different manifestation candles depending on the kind of change you want to create. Abundance, attracting love into your life, overcoming obstacles, and conquering fear are just just a few desires you can manifest. All materials provided, although we encourage you to bring paper to take notes. Angie Welch Bio: From a very early age I was able to see and connect with angels and people who had passed, and have been delivering those messages since I was a teenager. As a lifelong spiritual student, I have spent many years learning and nurturing these abilities. In more recent years, I found myself drawing and painting, while channeling messages. This newfound gift led to my offering of "Art Mediumship". Leap of Faith is the name I gave my personal journey to create and deliver the messages of my soul, as well as the name I bestowed upon my office (Leap of Faith Soul Space). When working with a client, I am able to connect with the angels, your guides, and loved ones in spirit who have passed. When doing art mediumship I create a personal intuitive piece, complete with the message(s) that Spirit wants me to share with you. As so much of our life depends on free will, I also offer "Akashic Records" readings, perfect for when you need guidance as to how certain choices may unfold in the future. The "Akashic Records" is the energy dimension that records the eternal journey of your soul and offers profound insight, understanding and healing energy. As a healer, I am trained in the powerful and effective healing modality of Pranic Healing. I am honored to have my spiritual gifts and feel it is my responsibility to share the truth that love is eternal, life is a gift of learning, and we are all connected. I would be honored to work with you as a client, or as a student in one of many spiritual development classes. Namaste. FMI on your instructor, please visit
