New class for The Renaissance Art Gallery: digital photography

With all the changes in cameras and photography, many are lost when it come to getting the most out of their cameras. The Renaissance Art Gallery and photographer Mike Adkins are offering instruction and help in understanding your digital camera.
Michael is a new member to the Renaissance Art Gallery, and we feel lucky to have someone so experienced and good at teaching!

The Introduction to Digital Photography Class is a six-week class covering everything from your first digital single lens reflex camera (DSLR) to how to prepare your images for display. Class will be held on Wednesday evenings starting March 31, 2010 through May 5, 2010.

Classes run for six weeks starting March 31, 2010 through May 5, 2010

This is the perfect place to start your enjoyment of a new digital camera and to learn to take better pictures. The only requirements for the class is to own a digital camera.
Even if you only have a fixed lens pocket digital camera this class is right for you. If you are considering the purchase of a digital SLR camera then you also will find this class a great resource to determine what camera is perfect for you.

Each student will receive a complete reference book on CD to serve not only as a study guide but a reference that you will find extremely valuable in the future. You will also find on the CD a list of valuable links to web based resources that will help in your future studies.

Classes are for all ages but recommended for student of high school age and up. The classes may include short field trip and instructor lead hands on sessions with your camera. The classes are about you the student and not a show and tell class.

The classes will include demonstrations and time for every student to get their questions answered. Class summary is posted at: http://www.mikeadkinsphotography.com/introclass.html
