Better yet, take a class with Ann this summer! If you’ve been meaning to pick up your digital camera, sessions begin in June and are enrolling now.

Intro to Digital Photography

Develop your photographic technique and learn more about your camera in this beginning class for DSLR users. We will explore basic camera function, the lens, light, composition, and exposure as you learn to take better pictures.

This class is for Digital SLR users only. Students must bring their own camera. No additional supply kit needed.


Ann is ready to share her expertise virtually!

“I would like to invite you to join our online Introduction Digital Photography class this summer on Monday evenings. We just finished up our first virtual session and I think we were all pleasantly surprised at how well this class adapted to the online format. The feedback from my students was very positive and everyone enjoyed viewing each others assignments from week to week. If you are wanting to learn more about your DSLR camera and start taking better pictures, then this is the class for you!”
