Instructor: Jim Seaton

Lecture: Yes;

Hands On: No

Cost: Free for Members and Non-Members

Minimum Attendees: 3; Maximum Attendees: 12


Curious about Lightroom? Wondering if you should give it a try? Switching to Lightroom involves both a financial and learning commitment, but is it worth it for you? This class is designed to help you decide. In an easy to understand manor, I will give an overview as to how Lightroom works and how it differs from other photo editors like Adobe’s Photoshop and Elements. I will also do some actual edits and adjustments on photos, so you can see what the capabilities of the program are. Although this is not a Lightroom training class, a lot of what you will learn will be helpful if you decide to start using the program.



Class Title: Travel Photography

Not hands on.

Date: Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM

Minimum # Students: 3 Maximum # Students: 12

Cost: FREE for Members and Non-Members Class


Description: You're going on big trip and want to do some nice photography. This class will will first discuss what you should take along, what to photograph and collect during the trip, and then when you get back home how to prepare a presentation - not just a slide show that bores everyone -- but a media show your friends and family will love. Then we'll show you a sample.



Class Title: UNDERSTANDING EXPOSURE, HISTOGRAM and the METER

Instructor: James Corwin Johnson

Date: Monday, May 21, 2018

Time: 1:30-4:00 p.m.

Cost: Members $15.00; Non-Members $20.00


This class is designed to provide a better understanding of how to read the Histogram on your camera. This tool is the most powerful tool on your camera for getting better results from your exposure. Exposure is one of the most important factors in the image capture process. Modern cameras show you your exposure, even in the auto modes, preserve that info in the metadata of the image file, and offer AEL lock and AFL lock (auto exposure and focus lock) in program modes. Creative modes on your camera offer over- and under- exposure compensation (making your picture lighter or darker). Most cameras still have at least three metering modes. This class makes understanding these camera features easy to understand and apply. This class will help demystify these essentials for getting the most out of your camera and creating better photography.
