This spring, 2017, I am teaching an 8-week Digital Photography class on Tuesday evenings and teaching three Thursday night workshops on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop software.
Digital Photo Class at Delaware Art Museum
Tuesdays, April 11 – May 30, 2017
6:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Eight weeks, 20 hours total. SLR digital camera is preferred, or a digital camera with a manual shooting mode. Simple point-and-shoot cameras will not work. Cell phones won’t work in this class. You need a camera with adjustments for ISO, shutter speed, and aperture. Students of all skill levels are welcome, age 15 and up. As part of this class, we sometimes photograph dress rehearsals at the Delaware Childrens’ Theatre.

Take your photographs to the next level in this series of workshops exploring Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. Students should have a basic understanding of these applications before enrolling. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops to class. Some bring their tablets and phones, but the class is designed around the desktop versions of these applications.
