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

LEARN HOW TO TAKE
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
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.
