The second hour is on “How to Take a Good Photo,” and will cover the components of exposure, composition, etc.  Bring your cameras to this class!

The class on August 14, will also be divided into two one-hour segments, with the first hour on “Preparing and Printing Your Photo,” which will cover very basic photo editing, sizing your photos, and adjusting for basic exposure and color correction. The second hour will cover mounting and matting your photos to display at county fairs and for framing.
