PHOTO FUNDAMENTAL / LAVC Community Ed (On campus)

Sat. Feb 12, 2022 from 10 AM to 4 PM. It will combine instruction in the classroom about the fundamentals of photography with going outside the classroom to try the skills being taught.

Overview of camera operation and photo basics. Topics include exposure modes, creative ways to show motion, depth of field, focusing, lenses, and more. Class is geared toward cameras (digital or film) with manual setting options. Open to teens 15 and older and adults.

Great review and overview!

FUN WITH PHOTOGRAPHY (ages 11-14/adult with child welcome) One day in person 3/12/22 (Adult welcome with a child who is signed up)

PHOTOGRAPHY BEYOND SNAPSHOTS (Hybrid: 2 Sat. morning photo walks in person & 3 Thurs evening online photo review sessions) 3/24/22 to 4/14/22  Great for learning about visual composition and shooting with "intention."

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.
