" Where Photography and Fun are Developed "
Let us teach you how to “make” a photograph instead of just “taking” a picture. Become familiar with photographic terms and techniques. It doesn’t matter if you use digital or film. Lessons are fun and simple to understand. Assignments will be given after the first four classes to reinforce the principles discussed in class. Learn photography from the people whose motto is “Where photography and fun are developed.” Please bring your camera that has the ability to control aperture and shutter (exposure) settings and the instruction book (if available) to class.
