Basic Exposure and Basic Equipment

Photography Workshop

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.

On July 19 and 20, AiG’s own award winning staff photographers, Marty and Deb Minnard, will conduct a two-day photographic workshop open to anyone age 14 or older.

The class will cover the principles of basic exposure and equipment, photographing flowers, and low-light shooting. We will concentrate on photographing the botanical gardens and then the exhibits in the museum.

Don’t wait to sign up. This class is limited in size.
