The first step into the amazing world of dSLR photography begins with learning how to operate the camera — what all those dials, buttons, and menus can do for you. And learning how beautiful pictures are created.
These course have been specifically designed for youths ages 9-12 and teens 13-16. During this series of fun, interactive, hands-on shooting, students will learn the essential functions of their cameras and how to use their cameras to confidently create memorable and engaging photographs.
• the basics on how to get the best exposure;
• which settings to use and when;
• how to set up the best shot;
• understanding light, color; and
• beginning composition.
Class sizes are kept small so students can get individual attention.

PATTERNS IN NATURE
ON EXHIBIT THROUGH SEPTEMBER 6TH
Photo: Amy Evans - Califon, NJ
A Note from Juror Jim Brandenburg: Something happened while spending much time with the photographs that were submitted to this Patterns of Nature call. I became attached and emotional to the images, all of them – the good frames and otherwise. I’m not afraid to share that feeling with you. Having spent most of my life on the business end of the camera I empathize with each photographer’s lonely journey from the quest for that image through the moment they submit. I know the feeling well. For More Information
