7-9 pm
DNC Members $100; General Public $125

Do you have a digital camera, but are still trying to figure out exactly how to use it? Do you set your camera on automatic, but really wish you knew how to take the pictures that you are trying to capture? We’ll spend 5 weeks learning all the in’s and out’s of digital photography, from what the basic settings mean to optimizing composition and lighting. We’ll also tackle specific subject areas like how to best take portraits or sports pictures of your children and how to take the best vacation pictures. Each week you’ll get a specific assignment and then we will spend part of the next class reviewing each student’s pictures. A syllabus and general photography handout will be distributed at the first class.
