Ready to go from "auto" to "manual" on your digital camera? This beginner photography class will walk you through the 3 pillars of correct exposure (aperture, shutter speed and ISO), including a review of student photos and discussion, editing software from Lightroom to smart phone apps, and how to organize and archive photos and the opportunity to sit down and organize your collection. Classes are split up into 3 (exposure and shooting on 1/13, editing on 1/20, organization and archiving on 1/27) and students may take all 3 classes or drop into the ones they choose. Students must have a digital camera and SD card for first class, and a computer for the photo editing and organization classes, along with photos to be edited and archived. Instructor: Cayla Vidmar. 
 
This class is offered in partnership with Western State Colorado Univerisity's Extended Studies Program. Click "Register" to enroll via their online system or call 970.943.2885 to register via phone.
