They will also learn some tips on how to improve the composition of their photos. Tim will go over how your camera works and how that knowledge can help you to improve and have more control over how your photographs turn out. Emphasis will be on landscape and waterfall photography. The Union River expedition is optional. Students need to bring their own cameras. The class will focus on digital SLR cameras but a point and shoot with various shooting modes will work. If students have a tripod for their camera, they should bring it.
