Taylor Sherman is May’s Artist of the Month!
Taylor has had an on-again, off-again relationship with photography that began with a 110 camera as a child, moving on to his father’s 20-year old Yashica SLR in 8th grade photography class, a couple decades of intermittent success using point-and-shoot digitals, and now finally once again with a setup that involves doing things like changing lenses and focusing mechanically. Taylor mostly finds himself taking pictures of things that he encounters, rather than conceptualizing and then going out to get the picture. The subjects range from abstract colors and shapes, to landscapes and foliage, to occasionally even people. This show focuses exclusively on photographs taken in and around Ballard in 2012 and 2013.

If you’ve ever wondered why your action shots come out blurry, why your evening shots look like broad daylight, or why your Aunt Bertha came out looking green in that reunion shot at the airport, take heart! You can learn how to fix these common problems – and more – by learning how your digital camera works.
Drawing on 15 years working as a photographer, I’ve created a series of workshops that take the mystery out of your camera’s technology so you can get the pictures you want every time even with a simple point-and-shoot camera. And there’s one coming up!
In Master Your Digital Camera, I cover all the basics. You’ll learn:
- How to find, set, and use key camera controls ASA/ISO, f-stop/aperture, shutter speed, and color balance
- How to get the right exposure in any lighting situation and trick your camera into ‘choosing’ the right exposure on automatic
- How to balance fill flash for backlit subjects
- Wide, zoom, and macro effects (now that you know something about camera controls)
- Tips on composition
When: Saturday, May 4 from 9:30am to 1pm Where: Seattle Creative Arts Center, Ballard neighborhood Cost: $75. Register by April 28 and get 15% off!

Research has shown that both listening to music and playing a musical instrument stimulate your brain and can increase your memory. A study was done in which 22 children from age 3 to 4 and a half years old were given piano lessons. A control group of 15 children received no music lessons at all. Both groups participated in the same preschool activities. The results showed that preschoolers who had weekly piano lessons improved their spatial-temporal skills 34 percent more than the other children. Not only that, but researchers said that the effect lasted long-term.
