Art group offers free digital photography sessionFebruary 09. 2018 8:29PM
TILTON - The Lakes Region Art Association (LRAA) will host a 12-hour Introduction to Digital Photography course in March, preceded by a free introductory session Tuesday at the group's art gallery in the Tanger Outlet Mall, Suite 132.
The free session, titled "The Science, Art and Joy of Digital Photography," will start at 7 p.m. The public is invited, and no preregistration is required.
Local photographer and LRAA gallery member Jay Fitzpatrick will conduct all four sessions. The full course will be on three consecutive Saturdays starting March 17 at 8 a.m. The cost of the course is $95 per person ($75 for LRAA members).
The free presentation will provide an overview of digital camera equipment, camera settings, composition techniques, subject matter, file processing, photo printing and framing. The full course will cover these basics in more detail and will include a discussion of the "exposure triangle" and how various camera settings can affect the final images, lighting, lenses, use of software such as Photoshop and how to expand one's creative abilities.
Students will have an opportunity to practice using their own camera equipment with the instructor's guidance. Homework assignments will be given and students will view their own work and the work of others, with the goal of gaining experience.
Preregistration is required for the three-session course, and class size is limited to 12. For more information or to register, stop by the LRAA gallery or contact Fitzpatrick at firstname.lastname@example.org or 455-6595.
