Camera Obedience School with Gary Faye


Please join us at Camera West for a beginning photographer seminar devoted to bringing a clear understanding of the digital cameras many options including menus, modes, lens choices, f stops, iso, histograms, and assorted intimidating buttons. Each topic is illustrated with pictures resulting in understanding craft and moving toward pictures under your control. We will finish with a more tame camera. We will also look at editing software. Remembered… many historical photographs were made with no menus, one lever, and one button.

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.

Next Session Thursday. October 27th 6:30-8:30 P.M.
Cost: $50 per person
