Choose Between Two Options
- $39 for a 3.5-hour Getting the Most From Your Digital Camera workshop for one on Saturday, August 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden (a $189 value)
- $75 for the above workshop for two (a $378 value)<p>
A classroom-style seminar with plenty of opportunities for hands-on help, the workshop immerses beginning and intermediate photographers in the inner workings of their digital cameras, showing them how to manipulate menu settings, f-stops, and shutter speed. The lessons also cultivate artistic development by spending time on what makes good composition and laying out strategies for when to use a flash. Before class, students download a seminar e-book and online movie about the function of each camera button.<p>
