So You Got A New Camera for Christmas… Now What?

Did Santa bring you a new camera for Christmas? Or, do you finally want to use the one he brought you in 2010?

New Date Added:  February 25 is now open

Want to take better pictures with your digital camera?

If either these describes you, then please join us on February 25 for a digital photography workshop at the Frontier Culture Museum. You’ll learn some easy composition and lighting techniques to improve your photos and make them more visually engaging. You’ll also have the opportunity to put this new knowledge to immediate use at the Museum’s outdoor exhibits with the guidance of Jennifer Vaughan, an interpreter and art & photography instructor with 28 years of teaching experience.

Your learning experience will conclude with some basic instruction in Photoshop, a powerful and widely used computer program used to crop photos, adjust color and contrast, and correct unwanted elements. When you’ve completed the workshop you’ll be on the path to taking more artistically composed photos.
