I was pleased to be joined by two other photographers, Robert Lippson and Kate Mann, offering a three-day course on “Digital Photography for Beginners,” at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, in St. Michaels, Maryland. We had some fun demystifying new technology, showing how to take advantage of the latest in digital photography, from cameras to smart phones, and everything between.
The “hands-on” course was designed for anyone wanting to improve their photography. Like other arts or crafts, we start with the “tools.” Instead of paints and brushes, we use a camera and lens. Once we understand the strengths of our tools, creativity is set free. Photography is about playing with light.
Three classes (on May 10, 17, and 24) were divided between classroom discussion and shooting in the field, on the beautiful campus of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum. Offered as part of the Academy for Lifelong Learning, 30 students learned and enjoyed sharing their results. The course sold out, with a waiting list. We will consider repeating it in the future.

What a wonderful idea! I have a number of competing commitments right now, but this kind of class would help me with my blog and website photography. Maybe next time! Jan

Thank you, Jan. I am considering holding a smaller “hands-on” workshop for SLR users this summer.
