Do you know the basic functions of your camera, but want to bring the “wow” factor to your photos? Improve your skills through 6 lessons with an expert. We will focus on using composition and lighting to capture more compelling images, and help you transition away from using automatic camera settings and move into the creative use of manual mode. We will gain practice with guided photo walks around town, then learn to take better photos through hands-on tutorials in the Center's computer lab. Please bring your DSLR camera to class. Enrollment limited to 8 students..
