At Understand Photography, our motto is "We Simplify the Technical". Our blog posts, as well as all our training programs and materials, are designed with that in mind. Meet Peggy Farren, the founder of Understand Photography, as she explains how to get the most of this website.
Cuba, Everglades, Old Naples Photo Tour, Women Only trips and more. Peggy Farren and Joe Fitzpatrick will give a very brief overview of what makes our excursions so special.
We offer simplified, step by step photography training in different formats.
We highly recommend everyone begins with our Four Weeks to Proficiency in Photography course. This course is a live, interactive online class with lots of support! and includes practice assignments.
We also offer training through hands-on, in person workshops and private lessons.
Join us for a short two hour tour, a day trip or spend days with us!
With the exception of our trips to Cuba, we limit attendance to five or six photographers per tour so that everyone can get individual attention.
We plan our tours so that every level of photographer will learn, have lots of fun and leave with amazing images!
We specialize in tours to Cuba, short Florida trips (we live here after all!) and Women-only trips.
Here are our products and services, as well as trusted affiliates, partners and friends' products.
Do you need your camera cleaned or repaired? Would you like a custom photo bag created just for you?
Our classes and trips can be purchased here as well!
“ Peggy and Joe are wonderful photographers with a gift for explaining things well. ”

Fall and winter in Florida means air shows and car shows. These events are fun to watch and draw hundreds, sometimes thousands, of attendees. This is great for the promoters of the events but presents challenges to photographers. The aircraft or automobiles are typically close together and surrounded by throngs of people. While images of attendees interacting with the displays are interesting, most of us primarily want clean shots of the planes or cars on display.

Add a little separation between your subjects or from the background to improve your composition. There are many ways to separate – you can use lighting for instance. Today, we’ll only talk about moving your body to improve your photographs.

I love some of the creative photographs I see on social media! One of the photographers in the Understand Photography Facebook group was on a levitation kick and posted several cool shots. On a recent photoshoot, I decided to try it. I took three or four of each person, positioning myself in the exact same place for each photograph.
