About the Instructor
Shelley Preston has been shooting for 21 years, and focuses most of her photographic work on shapes, shadows, and light. Traveling and chasing the light is her main love, where she chases those fleeting moments of light and immortalizes them in a photograph. She has called Austin home for most of her adult life, but has lived out west, nestled in the Northern Rockies, and also in the Midwest surrounded by skyscrapers. She began teaching photography to share her love for the art, and to give her own, creative approach to delivering messages on the art form. As an abstract painter, her photographs and paintings tend to blur the lines of both art forms, borrowing techniques from each medium. She earned a BA from Texas Tech University, and currently works in the Sales Department at Precision Camera & Video.
