Constructed to be a fun class with simple ways to take better pictures without getting all technical.
Space is limited to 11 participants per session. No previous experience is necessary.
“I LOVED the Mom’s camera class. I learned many things and picked up lots of useful tips. I’m looking forward to playing with my camera outside this spring, and taking lots of pictures of my kids. Thank you so much!”

Mastering Your Camera - Two session class. 2 hours on a Thursday followed by 2 1/2 hours on a Saturday. Cost is $155. This camera class starts to get a little more in depth for the photo enthusiast ready to get serious about their hobby. Designed more for the DSLR owner. In depth discussions and hands on experience with your DSLR camera. Topics included are using your camera’s different light metering settings, shutter speed and the effect your f-stop has on pictures. We’ll also discuss image capture settings such as the differences and advantages/trade-offs of RAW and JPEG. We’ll even arrange for a child model and, weather permitting, make a short field trip to a local playground.
Space is limited to 8 participants per session. Some basic understanding of your camera and a DSLR are highly advised. (Or a very advanced point and shoot camera such as the Canon Powershot G12 or the Nikon COOLPIX P7000.)
