If the mere thought of taking a digital photo makes you want to “shutter,” have no fear professional photographer Robert Gorrill, APSA, MNEC will be at Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center on June 27 at 2:30 p.m. to help you unwrap the box that you might have found under your Christmas tree and start you on your digital journey. Getting started with digital photography can be confusing when you have little or no experience with your equipment, lighting techniques, or editing and printing practices. Even if you do have some experience under your belt, a digital photography class can be a great way to improve your skills or look at your hobby from a new perspective. In this “hands-on” workshop you’ll learn how to use your camera’s features and controls and simple techniques to take better pictures. Learn the basics of photography as you explore the capabilities of your digital camera. Discover what aperture, shutter speed, and white balance are and how they affect your photographs. Find out how and when to use the flash, and experiment with photographic composition to get the most out of your camera–and yourself!: Please bring your camera, manual, and extra batteries to class.

$20 participant fee. To register call 563-1363. Minimum class size 4 students.

As you and your digital camera become friends please remember these 4 simple tips which Bob will reinforce during his workshop: Always take your camera with you; take your pictures in quantity; take pictures of what you know; and have fun. Whatever kind of pictures you take remember to always enjoy yourself and your surroundings, because you’re obviously in a great place or with great people if you feel a picture is worth taking. Bob’s class is open to community members across all generations. Robert B. Gorrill, APSA, MNEC is a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and a Vice President and Master Member of the New England Camera Club Council (NECCC).
