Instructor: Suzette Niess

Do you have a great eye, and love taking photos, but haven’t ventured out of auto mode on your camera? Or maybe you’ve tried photographing in manual mode, but you’re frustrated by all of the settings. If you have a beautiful vision of the picture you want to create, but the results aren’t always quite what you expected then this class is for you. Local portrait photographer and Master Gardener Suzette Niess will explain the various modes on your camera to help you create beautiful images. Classroom instruction will be followed with hands- on flower and plant photography in the gardens at Belle Grove.

Required materials: a camera that allows you to control shutter, aperture, and ISO. Lens of your choice for shooting up close. (Optional but not necessary: tripod and/or macro lens.) Please bring camera manual to class.

Registration is $25.
