Free Introduction to Digital Photography workshop

Starting Tuesday, May 26 at 1 p.m. we will have a free three week Introduction to Digital Photography workshop led by local artist Dennis Fox. The class will begin with the basics and teach how to change settings to create not just good snapshots but creative works of art. A camera isn’t required for class, but participants can bring theirs for in-class practice – even a Smartphone camera can take great photos! This is a small class and students will receive individualized attention. Space is limited so participants need to call or come by the Library to register.
