Photography Class 2018 (Thursday AM)
The GVR Camera Club has been presenting a “Ten Week Camera Class” for several years. In 2018 the Club has decided to change both the name of the Class and it's emphasis. The class is now titled “Photography Class 2018". The popularity of quality cameras in phones and the vast array of features on cameras has shifted the our focus from equipment to the actual photograph.
Even with the new Photographic Paradigm, photographers need a basic understanding of how a digital camera works and the relationship between digital photo files, computers and the Internet.
• All of the “Instructor Handouts”, some instructional videos and other information are available on CD and on the Internet.
• Any Class Information that needs to be updated during the ten weeks will be sent directly to you through the GVR Camera Club’s Wild Apricot system.
• For the first time, the GVR Camera Club will be offering a “Certificate of Completion” to all class participants who meet certain criteria.
Here is a tentative schedule of planned class sessions:
Week 1 - Introduction and Club Tour
Participants are registered and assigned by day of the week. A member who signed up for Wednesdays would come every Wednesday at 1:30 PM. A member who signed up for the Thursday session would come every Thursday at 9:30 AM and so on. We understand that emergencies arise and that participants may have scheduling conflicts on occasion. If you have a scheduling problem just come to a different session that week.
