Jun 21, 6-9pm

Learn how to take the very best photos you can with your digital camera. From sports action shots to portraits of family, getting these right requires knowledge of camera settings. You'll leave with a better understanding of what your camera can do and that will have you shooting better photos. We'll cover ISO, focusing, shooting modes, auto modes, scene modes, program modes, composition, controlling flash and more.

BEN WHITE is a Richmond-based working commercial and portrait photographer. He fell in love with photography while working on his high school yearbook and newspaper, and networking/working with local professional photographers has allowed him a hands-on education, and furthered his perspective within the medium. He owes much of his process to mentors, teachers and historical photographers (namely Weegee, Robert Capa & Ansel Adams), whose ideals and perspectives have allowed him to confidently understand and execute principles of lighting & photography.  Portrait photography has become his passion, and he is exceptionally intrigued by surrealist portraiture work, which is the bulk of his personal work lately.  However, his photography business (www.Benjah-Photography.com) takes up the majority of his shooting time.
