Digital Photography 1 - North Port  Class already in session...it is possible that the teacher may allow a late registration.  Please call the office at 941-361-6590.
Item: PNP1002 Andrzej Oscilowicz
W 11/6/2019 - 12/11/2019  The best way to learn to take good pictures is to shoot pictures and then share positive critiques; this is how we all learn. Each week in this class, I will give you a different photography assignment, and the next week, come to class with your three best pictures on a flash drive. We'll spend part of the class looking at everyone's work. It's stimulating and inspiring to see what everyone comes up with. Make sure you have the manual for your camera. If you don't, you can download it at www.cameramanualsonline.com. Print it, or save it to a flash drive. Make sure the battery is charged.
