Brian Loflin (of our fantabulous Nature Photography video) teaches several different photography classes for us - Composition and Light, Macro Photography, Publishing Your Photographs. We asked him to take part in our instructor interview, and we thought we’d share a snippet:
IC: Can you tell us a little bit about your background with photography?
BL: I am a biologist by education. Early on I had the requirement to document my work through photography. That work included producing high magnification images and processing the materials in a traditional darkroom. As they say, it got in my blood. Later, I had many fortunate opportunities to travel around the world photographing people, places and products. Today I am back to the pursuit of natural sciences with my wife, Shirley, through writing, photographing and publishing books through Texas A&M University Press. I have recently completed my third in that series and two others. We also lead nature photography workshops in a variety of locations.
We also wanted to share some of the comments from his last Beyond the Basics class:
Great teacher. The class was very informative -some topics over my head in the last couple classes, but I liked talking about Photoshop too.
Very insightful. Learned basics, advanced techniques, and creative methods. Brian brings professional and creative processes to the classroom.
Brian has more classes scheduled to start in June! Check out his instructor page to find links to all of his upcoming courses.
