Professional clicker Eileen Keenan guides pupils during two-hour photography workshops that focus on DSLR basics and how to digitally manipulate images. In a basic class, Keenan teaches her students to bend light and photogenic spoons by revealing the secrets of the camera's photo-perfecting mechanisms such as aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Budding shutterbugs spend the final 30 minutes of class actively practicing what they’ve learned about balance and composition as they venture forth to work their shutters under the instructor’s watchful eye.
The Next Step in Photography workshop builds on the basic workshop’s foundation, and the Organize, Edit and Print! class imparts digital-editing wisdom, teaching students the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom 3. Pupils leave the editing workshop better equipped to distribute tweaked snapshots via printed images, websites, or holographic messenger pigeons.
