DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY WITH RAFAEL TORRES – Schedule varies, check back  for current schedules.   

 Rafael began his art career as a painter’s apprentice in Cuba, and continued as a graphic artist/editorial illustrator for a Florida newspaper.  “Always an admirer of photography,” Rafael relates, “I began taking pictures of people and places, eventually teaching myself the mysteries of the chemical darkroom.  It would be decades later when I turned off the red safe light for good and chose the computer screen to process my photographs.”

Today Rafael’s images reflect many subjects, including the natural world and people and places.  Most of his work is in color, but once in a while he returns to the allure of the abstract black and white image.

The Art League of Daytona Beach, 433 South Palmetto Avenue in the historic downtown district, is opening its doors for a Summer Season of classes and workshops for those interested in learning and improving their skills in various media. 


In order to offer practical methods, I plan to hold a new summer course on “PHOTOGRAPHY AND PHOTOSHOP SKILLS” starting on Saturday, July 7, meeting at 9:00 AM at the Art League of Daytona Beach, 433 South Palmetto Avenue.
Students will learn basic and intermediate skills in photography and later, practical use of the Adobe Photoshop and Elements applications. When the weather allow, we will go on short local field trips to practice use of lenses, exposure, composition using their camera equipment.
In the studio and classroom at the Art League, students will use their own laptop computers to download and process their images under the guidance of instructor Rafael Torres.
Cost of each weekly class, including field trips, is $35 payable on attendance. Pre-registration is required by replying to this message at Suburbanexplorer@gmail.com
