The outdoor digital-photography classes takes place at Eagle Point in North Smithfield. Students bring their digital SLR cameras and meet their instructor, Gary Detonnancourt, in the parking lot of the North Smithfield Library before embarking on an outdoor odyssey to hone their moment-capturing skills. In Eagle Point’s bucolic wonderland of waterfalls and woodlands, Gary kicks off the adventure with a crash course in manipulating each camera’s controls and functions. The lesson also covers white balance and offers everything a layman needs to know about the physics of light, followed by a section on composition and getting the most from different lenses and tripods. The day’s final exercise reveals a world of potential creative effects through exposure manipulation.

About Rhode Island Photography Workshops

After purchasing his first DSLR camera, Gary Detonnancourt made the common mistake of investing in expensive equipment before learning to use what he already had. Eventually realizing that his gear was only as good as his understanding of it, he became a self-made expert in the art of digital photography. He went on to become president of the Northern Rhode Island Camera Club, and he now draws on years spent as a science teacher to explain to students how light works and why shining a laser pointer on something is hilarious. That same experience has caused him to apply a hands-on philosophy in workshops and online programs as well as lessons in studio photography, fine-art printing, and Photoshop. The shutterbug also appears at weddings to capture special-day grins, and portraits of young children beg for space in photo albums next to teddy bear–hunting licenses.
