In the age of advancing technology, DSLR cameras are starting to come with more bells than a caroling troupe, but for all their advancement, cameras still don’t have the key element needed to take stellar photos…human creativity. This course requires students to come equipped with a DSLR camera, tripod, and a laptop with Adobe Lightroom installed. Instructor will have a limited number of tripods to loan to students in need. Laptop needed for session three only.

All 3 sessions: MBG members $195/non-members $225. Sessions 1 and 2 only: MBG members$130/non-members $150. Session 3 only: MBG members $65/non-members $75. Call 901-636-4128 for more information or to register.
