Master control of your camera and consistently take good pictures. Get step-by-step guidance in camera operation and photo basics, with an emphasis on using a camera for creative expression. Topics include exposure modes, manual vs. automatic settings, creative ways to show motion, depth of field, focusing, lenses, flash, and more. An outdoor practice session gives you an opportunity for help from the instructor. Thinking of purchasing a camera? Helpful pointers to consider will be discussed at the first meeting. All others: please bring your camera and owner’s guide to the first class. Class is geared toward cameras (digital or film) with manual setting options. Open to teens 15 and older and adults.


SHOOT & REVIEW  TBA (hybrid)

Photo walks and  (virtual) group reviews — get feedback, have fun & see the variety of ways others handled the same photo ops.

Arranged and lead by Nancy, S&R consists of 6 meetings. Three meetings are (solo) SHOOTING excursions & 3 are (virtual) REVIEW meetings.  In non-pandemic times excursions go to various locations and participants explore in groups or with me.

REVIEWS give everyone a chance to show photos, discuss experiences, get supportive feedback. It's friendly, informal, & fun. Gain confidence with "street photography" and enjoy a common interest with other photographers! SHOOTS usually on Sunday afternoons. REVIEWS are on weekday evenings. Join mailing list to be notified when I plan the next S&R

I'm open to any class ideas and I'm available if you have a group wanting your own class.
