This class is for students who are new to digital photography.

Students will learn composition, subject, framing, setting, and editing. We will also discuss internet safety, photography etiquette, and finding and photographing the beauty in everyone.

”My daughter thoroughly enjoyed Jamy’s Beginning Digital Photography Class. Jamy has a lifetime of knowledge and experience to share. Even better than her expertise, she connects well with her students and is able to teach in such a way that her students are able to grasp the concepts being taught. I highly recommend her class for anyone interested in learning more about getting better photographs with a digital camera. “ ~Melanie Carroll
