Digital Boot Camp

Digital Boot Camp's leading drill sergeant Darrell Young's passion for digitized photography first encompassed close-up images of subjects but quickly progressed to include sweeping landscapes and flattering portraits. Today, the shutterbug enjoys turning his lens toward his 4-year-old daughter and helping others attain the knowledge and skills required to capture life's striking moments. Darrell's Canon or Nikon boot camps are hands-on workshops where novices and advanced photogs alike probe DSLR and digital-camera settings, glean Photoshop savvy, and tackle flash techniques in order to aptly draw out any subjects' beautiful red eyes.
