The Paul D. Camp Community College Division of Workforce Development will offer a digital photography class for beginners, titled “Get More from Your Camera,” at PDCCC at Smithfield, 253 James St., on the second floor of the Blackwater Regional Library.

The class will be taught by award-winning photographer Shirley Whitenack on Wednesdays, beginning Feb. 8 through March 1, 2017, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. The cost is $110.

“Participants will learn about the amazing things your camera is capable of that you never knew were possible,” said Whitenack.

The instruction will cover basic camera mechanics, selection of file type, shooting modes, automatic focus, manual focus and flash. Exposure, shutter speeds, f-stops, ISO, white balance, metering modes, and impact of light direction will also be discussed.

“There will be opportunities for outdoor shooting and take-home assignments to reinforce classroom instruction,” said Whitenack.
