Roxbury Arts Center
$30 per person, includes all materials.
Get inspired by working with different mediums, subjects, and teaching artists at this new Roxbury Arts Group program. Beginning and experienced artists are welcomed.
This month’s Drop In Art Class, led by photographer Kevin Q. Gray, will lead participants through all of the basic (and not so basic) functions of today’s digital cameras. Shutter speeds, apertures, ISO, file formats, lenses, filters and much more will be discussed. Gray will talk on compositional skills, making sure that what the participant envisions in their mind is what comes true through the camera lens. The workshop will include an outdoor ‘photo safari’ in Roxbury (weather permitting) and a brief discussion of photo editing software.
This workshop is best suited to those participants who own a digital SLR camera with interchangeable lenses, or an advanced point-and-shoot camera with manual shutter and aperture modes.
