Rockstein Offers Six-Week Photo Classes


National award-winning photographer Steve Rockstein will share his vision and expertise with classes beginning May 17 at Tillett Gardens on St. Thomas. On Wednesdays, Rockstein will offer “Getting Started,” a class designed to “teach you everything you need to know to begin taking great pictures.”
“The class is open to everyone from beginner to pro,” said Rockstein, “the only requirements are love of photography and the desire to do it well.”
The Wednesday class, called “The Next Step,” will begin on Tuesday, May 17, and is for folks who have some knowledge of the basics but want to understand the medium better. This class includes an introduction to working with PhotoShop software. “Access to a digital SLR is a real plus,” he said, “but some of my students have done remarkable work with just a basic point-and-shoot. It’s really all about what you see, not what you own.”
Both classes will be held from7-9 p.m. at Kimberly Young’s Everyday Clay gallery located in Tillett Gardens. The cost is $150 for each one.
The National Endowment for the Arts, The VI Council on the Arts, The National Association of News Photographers, The Society of News Designers and The International Center of Photography have all honored Rockstein’s work, which has been published and exhibited worldwide.
