Photography Fun in SRQ  

Do you have a simple point-and-shoot camera? Or do you have a fancier camera but are spooked by all of the buttons? This class is about having artful fun with your camera. The French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson said of photography: "Doesn’t take any brains; takes sensitivity, a finger, and two legs. But it is beautiful when you feel that your body is working or, like this, full of air and in contact with nature, it’s beautiful." This class will alternate between the classroom (demonstrations and looking at everyone’s photographs) and hands-on shooting in the field. Students may repeat this class. Class placement advice: The class is more about sensitivity, and less about technical stuff. If you're using an ILC/mirror-less camera or a DSLR, and want to learn about the tools of photography, consider taking Digital Photography 1 - Basic Camera Tools. Prerequisite: Cellphones or any digital camera are okay. Bring your camera's manual if you have it. Make sure the battery is charged and that there's space on the memory card. Got a question?
