Camera Obedience School with Gary Faye

Please join us at Camera West Rancho Mirage for a beginning photographer seminar dedicated to bringing a more clear understanding of the digital camera’s many options including menus, modes, lens choices, f stops ISO, histograms and assorted buttons that many avoid like the plague. Each topic is illustrated with pictures resulting in understanding craft and moving toward the pictures you intended. We will finish with a camera you have tamed. Remember, some of the most important photographs in history were made with just one or two buttons.

This casual presentation is especially appropriate for beginning photographers. There will be time for open conversation, questions and refreshments. Please RSVP early as each monthly session is limited to 12 participants.

Thursday, August 28th, 7-9 PM.

Cost is $50. per person.

Please call or email Camera West Rancho Mirage for more info or to sign up.

His work has been featured in LFI Magazine and on the Leica Blog and he has won numerous Editor’s Choice Awards along with several International Juried Awards. His images demonstrate his genuine curiosity in the wide world around him and its intimate, human stories. He has a somewhat surprising career path which shows the rest of us who are interested in photography what can be accomplished by a committed photographer.
