2013 Summer Photography Workshop

Basic Exposure and Basic Equipment

Attention, shutterbugs! Do we have an opportunity for all of you amateur photographers! Whether you received a new digital camera for Christmas or have been looking at the world through a lens for a long time, you can now get instruction from the pros.
