Intro to Photography - Understanding the Camera - Sept.

If your camera is a phone, we’ll talk about some different camera apps that can give you the same controls that regular cameras have. The goal is to create great images. Understanding how your camera functions will help you make more compelling images that you can be proud of. The final class will be an editing workshop. Bring your camera of choice to class!
