View this email in your browser
You love photography ... but don’t know where to begin.
You have a nice camera ... but don’t understand all the bells and whistles.
You want to learn more ... but it’s hard to find the time.

We hear you! With words like "megapixels" and "mirrorless" tossed around any photography-related conversation, it's easy to get overwhelmed by just looking at your camera.

But it doesn't have to be like this! With the convenient and affordable classes offered in our Fall 2015 Adult Ed program, we will get you and your camera pointed in the right direction, while helping you tune out all the non-essential noise. These classes are ideal for anyone who wants to learn more about the basics of photography, understand more about their camera, or are simply looking for a way to pursue their hobby without wreaking havoc on their schedule!

And don't let the name fool you ... these courses are open to young adults, actual adults, and "young at heart" adults!


Instructor: Marcy James
Cost: $75
Begins: October 7, 2015

How is it that two people can take a photo of the exact same thing at the exact same time, yet one of the images holds the viewers' attention longer? 

Creative composition! That's how!

This 4-session course taught by RMSP Education Coordinator Marcy James will introduce you to methods for achieving better composition in your photographs, regardless of subject. Marcy will touch on how selective depth of field, motion blur, leading lines, and angle can impact your images. 

This class is limited to 16 people.
