Photography 101 - The Basics

This intro Workshop, part classroom, part hands-on, has been designed to help the student elevate their skills in the capture of an image by being introduced to the  key components of photography and certain techniques used by professional photographers.  The student will also be given a few tricks to help them get more "keeper" images right away and then be able to put what they have learned into practice in a real-time environment.
