Digital Photography 101 class offered in Strong

MSAD #58 Adult & Community Education to offer Digital Photography

STRONG -- MSAD #58 Adult & Community Education will be offering a 6 week Digital Photography 101 course beginning on Monday, January 31, 2011. The class is designed for beginner and intermediate photographers and will be held Monday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Strong Elementary School (art room) with instructor Steve Mitman.  The cost of the course is $75 per student.

Classes will include: instruction on photographic and compositional techniques, a weekly shooting assignment, and a critique/sharing component. The intent of this class is to help each student become a better photographer. The class is structured so that each photographer, a beginner or more experienced, will benefit from the lessons, shooting assignments and weekly feedback sessions.

Requirements: Students will need a digital camera. Any type of digital camera from a point and shoot to a DSLR is acceptable.  Access to a computer and editing software (which comes with most digital cameras) is necessary to edit and process photos at home.
Instructor Steve Mitman has over 35 years of experience in making photographic mistakes and learning from them. He has a BFA from Michigan State University and currently teaches art to elementary and middle school students in Strong. As a freelance photographer, his work can be seen in the Original Irregular Newspaper, the Daily Bulldog and in various blogs on the internet.
