Learn how to take high-end professional photos in a fun, no-pressure atmosphere.

Ever looked at the photos posted by BingPop and though 'wish I could do that!' It's not really all that hard; we'll get you started--no experience necessary. All you need is an entry level "DSLR" camera or better (digital single-lens reflex camera)--or certain mirrorless cameras. Not sure if you have a DSLR? They usually have detachable lenses--but you can email for help.

The class will be held in the very cool Jablon Studios space typically used for mosaic projects--definitely worth checking out.

You'll learn how to set the camera to manual and makes the choices necessary to take high-end professional photos. Don't be intimidated! It gets technical but we'll take it one step at a time.

Class is limited to 20 participants.

The fee for four 90 minutes classes is $200.
