Professional photographer Jennifer Costello helms two-hour photo safaris in which fledgling shutterbugs explore a series of picture-worthy Portland spots. After a brief overview of basic principles such as composition, lighting, and pointing the lens at the head to document fleeting thoughts, participants depart on a 1.5-mile stroll past Portland’s downtown sites. As students fine-tune framing, focusing, and flashing skills, Jennifer will provide able instruction as she assists students with setting up shots and coaxing Mother Nature to sit still. Each photographer must provide his or her own fully charged battery, a memory stick for up to 300 pictures, and a digital point-and-shoot or DSLR camera. Classes take place rain or shine, so students should plan accordingly by bringing an umbrella-holding butler.
