SaddleBrooke Photography Club welcomes beginning photographers

Tim Butler

Are you new to photography or interested in learning about the basics of taking more interesting pictures without having to learn a lot of technical jargon? If so, the SaddleBrooke Photography Club is offering our very popular “Introduction to Photography” course, which is designed to help new photographers capture more creative images no matter what brand or type of camera they have (even a cell phone!). It will be focused on the creative side of photography rather than the technical details. The course offers a personalized, hands-on approach to help you:

1. Better understand how to let your own camera’s automated functions “do the technical thinking” for you so you can concentrate on the creative side of taking pictures.

2. Learn the fundamentals of composition and design to take you from merely shooting snapshots to getting more artistic images that will cause you and others to say “wow.”

“We feel that there are many people in our community who are either completely new to photography or are casual shooters and would like to learn to take better pictures but are intimidated by the thought of having to learn a lot of technical details such as F-stops, shutter speed, focus modes, etc.,” says Roddy Wilder, club president. “Our goal with this course is to reach out to those folks and give them a way to start having more fun with their camera without the need to absorb the technical stuff.”

The course will consist of five, two-hour classes held each Sunday beginning on Oct. 13. You need not be a member of the SaddleBrooke Photography Club to join the class. Enrollment will be limited to 12 individuals so that we can provide plenty of individual “hands on” coaching.
