9 to 11
May 2 - May 23
Going out with friends to photograph is fun. Join us! We photograph at locations in and around Sarasota. The following week, in the classroom, we look at our photos with friendly-styled commentary. The French photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, said of photography: "Doesn’t take any brains, takes sensitivity, a finger and two legs. But it is beautiful when you feel that your body is working or, like this, full of air and in contact with nature, it’s beautiful."
Students may repeat this class.
Class placement advice: The class is more about sensitivity, and less about technical stuff. Are you using an ILC/mirror-less camera, or a DSLR? If so, and you want to learn about the tools of photography, consider taking Digital Photography 1 - Basic Camera Tools.
Prerequisite: Cellphones or any digital camera are okay. Bring your camera's manual if you have one. Make sure the battery is charged and that there's space on the memory card.
