Intro to Photography 

This four-session introductory photography series, taught by Bruce Rosenstiel, guides students to progress beyond taking snapshots to creating photographs by focusing on composition, perspective, and camera operation. We begin by exploring your camera’s capabilities and learning how to manually adjust for shutter speed, aperture and ISO. Students need to bring a camera and the camera manual. A digital SLR or compact camera with manual controls is essential for this class.

Bruce Rosenstiel


Bruce Rosenstiel was drawn to photography by his fascination with wildlife and world cultures. He enjoys photographing all manner of flora and fauna to reveal the extraordinary, and often unseen, diversity and beauty of nature.

Likewise, Bruce’s cultural portraits seek to make the foreign accessible by diffusing barriers of difference, creating a visual language of images that focuses on themes of universal human experience: work, play, worship, sorrow, joy.

Bruce’s Small World is dedicated to fostering environmental stewardship and cross-cultural understanding, by highlighting the bonds and behaviors between species and across communities, communicating through images when there is no shared spoken language.

Since 2009, he has taught classes through the Southlake and Grapevine, Texas Parks and Recreation departments. He currently teaches introductory and intermediate photography and Adobe Lightroom to adults of all ages.

He and his wife have co-lead Culture and Photography Tours to Oaxaca, Mexico and Peru.  Beginning in 2015, Bruce has lead photographic tours to Zimbabwe for Sikeleli Safaris.

His work has appeared in many publications and websites and has been selected for many juried exhibits.
