Who Should Take This Class?
This is a beginners workshop that will teach you how to get your camera off the auto setting and on to taking better pictures. You will leave here with a new understanding of your camera’s functions and how to use them, take home assignments to practice what you have learned, a bag of goodies, a fully tummy and a few new friends!
A DSLR is required for this workshop. This workshop is not for people already familiar with their cameras, looking for advanced techniques or people entering into business. Before coming to class, you will need to read your manual and bring it along. This is very important because we will not be covering individual camera functions.
The workshop is approximately five hours. The cost is $135 per person. Payment in full is due at registration. A light brunch and beverages will be provided.
The workshop will be held at The Lodge at Crandall Park, in Tolland, CT. The Lodge is a beautiful rustic cabin nestled on a wooded hilltop overlooking a quiet pond. A picturesque location ready to spark your creativity!
There is a minimum of 10 students. If minimum number of students isn’t met, class will be rescheduled.
