PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS WITH CYNTHIA SHAFFER AT WHITE IRONSTONE COTTAGE

Hello friends!
Saturday the boys and I went to Solana Beach to take a photography class with the talented Cynthia Shaffer. It's my third class yes and I am constantly learning more and more, and I don't think is my last one. I came to the conclusion that to me is not just learning photography but the interaction with the other students and also when you see the photos you will notice how beautiful the location of the class is.
Some of you know Pam Balla proprietor of
 White Ironstone Cottage. She is sweet, kind and she is very creative and her house is beautiful just like her!

my youngest son Raffaele (light blue shirt) and our good friend John took the photography class also, they loved it! I asked John to stay still and he did, I asked Raffaele to stay still..he did but not his face, eyes closed on the first picture and eyes crossed on the second. 
There she is!!!
Talented artist, photographer......Cynthia Shaffer

Yes! I learn something new everyday. 
Every class is in a different location, different landscape, house style, light......

Ciao for now

Rita
