Photographer Glen Graves, who possesses a sensitive and aesthetically attuned eye informed by decades of experience, demystifies digital photography for budding shutterbugs in a four-hour class entitled The Fundamentals for the Craft of Digital Photography and an Introduction to the Design and Art of Photography. Combining skills from three separate classes, the session guides groups of 50 students or less through the use of their camera’s manual settings. As students sip provided coffee, the veteran flash dispatcher doles out useful tidbits on transforming ordinary photographs into highly imaginative works of art. 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.
