What do you think? Should I?

Our local news paper is putting on a photography workshop. It's only $10 for a session from 1:30pm to 5:30pm with the photogs of the paper. Here is a detailed description of the day...

N&O Photography Class

Sunday, September 12, 2010
LEARN HOW TO TAKE
BETTER PHOTOS
Meet our staff photographers and learn from the pros!

Learn how to take better pictures of your friends, family & the world around you
Learn composition and lighting techniques
Learn how to faithfully reproduce the color you capture with your camera onscreen and in your prints
Gain a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO to get the correct exposure
Understand the different types of camera shooting modes and file formats

Class Description

Bring your camera and join award-winning N&O Photographers Scott Sharpe, Chuck Liddy, John Rottet and others in a hands-on photography workshop. It's never been easier or more affordable to take good pictures and to share them!

You'll participate in three 45-minute back-to-back sessions:
#1: Photographing sports -- From kid's soccer to the Olympics
#2: Photographing nature -- Capturing beauty in the world around you
#3: Photographing, friends, family, and strangers -- The engaging portrait

-------

So, does this sound like something I should do? I'm afraid it's going to be very basic. But I think I'm willing to put up with that just to get some contacts with some professionals in my area. Plus, I probably would learn something while I was there.

Personally, if it were offered here, I'd jump on it!

Go, have fun, and meet some folks. Get exposed to a few things you haven't seen/done before and reinforce stuff you already know.

Just my $0.02 worth.

Best,
GiGi

I'd definitely do it! It's well worth $10 to make new contacts and get the chance to take more pics.

I agree with everyone else! Go for it! I wish there was something like that around here. Be sure to tell us about it afterward!

I would do it!!! And heck, if it is too basic it was only $10. I wish I could find more classes around here.
