There will be a digital nature photography workshop at The Arboretum for those new to digital photography.
Taken some digital photographs but are looking to get more out of your camera? The workshop can help people take their digital camera to new levels. The Arboretum’s half-day Beginner’s Digital Photography will teach participants how their digicam works, how to get the most out of it by adjusting from the auto settings, and what they can do with pictures once they have got them on the computer. Guest facilitator Jon Brierley will lead the workshop on Oct. 17 from 9am to noon.
The fee is $55.
