February 16th, 2011

 

Exciting news !  Did you get a new digital camera for christmas ?  Or maybe you've had one for a while - but you always wanted to know how the heck it works?  Come hang out with us at the YMCA !  I'm pleased to announce that I'll be teaching an adult photography class for anyone who'd like to learn how to take better pictures !

 

 

 

 

This first class is for adults only and is geared towards basic point-and-shoot digital cameras.  We will be running a more advanced class for SLR users in April.  All classes will teach the basics for caring for and using your camera, settings and functions.  We're meeting every thursday evening at 7pm.

 

If you have any questions or would like to sign up, contact the YMCA at:   724.845.1968

 

It's going to be a great class, don't miss out !
