Professional photographers Jonathan Mathis and Carlos Guzman nurture and support budding photographic talents with their classes and workshops. During the six-hour Point & Shoot digital photography workshop, budding shutterbugs maximize camera potential as an expert instructor discusses the basics of camera operation while shining light on the various camera modes, menus, and zoom features. In both Point-and-Shoot and DSLR camera classes, instructors also cover the fundamentals of editing, cropping, printing, and storing. At the end of each workshop, apprentices review their photos from the session and discuss them as a group, pointing out strengths, weaknesses, and skillfully camouflaged Waldos. Other classes and workshops have included sessions on topics such as studio lighting, documentary photography, and digital editing. Creative Digital Workshops also hosts low-cost lectures and demonstrations to inspire communities to see and capture their worlds through a camera lens.
