Beginning Digital Photography

May 13, 2023 at 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Saturday, May 13 ~ 11:00am-2:00pm EST

Just got a new camera? Learning how to work it can make all the difference for you to have fun while making great images of your family and vacations or stepping up your photography for exhibition. This beginning workshop for adults and mature teens will cover basic camera controls and how they relate to lighting, getting the correct exposure, getting good color and composition. The goal of this stress-free workshop is to develop a clear understanding of your camera controls while exploring some key elements of photography.  There will be a balance of technical and creative information and include a great publication to follow after the workshop.  “One of the words I often hear from people is ‘afraid’.  “I was afraid to fiddle with it because I was afraid I would not be able to get it back to the settings that would work for me.”  Nancy’s major goal for this workshop is to help take the fear out of this technology for you. By the time we are finished, your fingers and brain will feel more comfortable setting up things in the menu, and most importantly, you will understand why you are doing that. These actions are not random. Nancy will show you what is important to know for the type of photographs you like to make and how to quickly think through the process.” 

This class will be conducted live on Zoom. Participants will receive an email from Peters Valley at least 48 hours prior that includes a link and a password. Only registered participants will be admitted.
