Intro to Digital Photography

SJAC welcomes veteran photographer and educator Rod Stears as a new instructor! This intro course covers topics ranging from a broad based understanding of digital photography, including how to use your camera (basic camera controls), principles of composition, exposure, photo file management, and creative possibilities in the digital domain.  Now is a great time to learn the technical and creative aspects of taking pictures with your camera, and how to use photographic techniques to achieve the desired results!
Participants will need to have a DSLR camera that they can use throughout the course.

COVID-19 POLICY NOTE: As a public building, SJAC must follow the Government of New Brunswick’s Public Health guidelines on the coronavirus. In the unfortunate event that the local Saint John Zone must ‘move back’ to stricter social distancing policies and workshops must be cancelled, participants will be refunded for cancelled classes.

Please note that community face masks are required in class.
