Photographer Glen Graves, who possesses a sensitive and aesthetically attuned eye informed by decades of experience, demystifies digital photography for budding shutterbugs during a four-hour class entitled The Fundamentals for the Craft of Digital Photography and an Introduction to the Design and Art of Photography. The veteran flash dispatcher allows groups limited to 50 students to pick his brain for useful tidbits on how to use their digital cameras to capture imaginative snapshots. After each class, protégés receive a take-home guide, a detailed handout on the concepts covered in the class, and a PowerPoint presentation on the scientific ramifications of string theory.
PhotoArts Marin – Glen Graves
