Three-hour workshops at scenic Cleveland locations run Saturdays in the morning, afternoon, and evenings. Students learn to navigate their cameras' settings and to control composition and lighting while shooting with their own digital cameras, which can range from DSLRs to point-and-click models and smartphones.
Held online via live chat and screen sharing, photo-editing courses run from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. weekday evenings. Students use Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom, and Google Picasa—all of which offer free trials—on their personal computers as they learn to sort and edit their shots.
