Digital Photography for Beginners
In this workshop participants will learn about the digital camera (DSLR’s and advanced point and shoot cameras) and begin to use them to their fullest potential. Participants will learn the various buttons and menus/sub-menus that you inevitably encounter. Your instructor, Gary Weekes, will introduce you to basic composition and lighting. This course is a great starting point for anyone with a passion for pictures, who feels that not knowing the technical elements stifles their creativity.
