Free digital photo classes at PA Cyber offices in Western Pa.

Sep 15, 2014

A free two-hour class in digital photography will be offered at four PA Cyber offices in western Pennsylvania in early October.

Registration is being offered initially to PA Cyber students and parents, but, space permitting, is open to anyone. Class size limit is 20 per session.

“Many people are confused by all the settings on their digital cameras,” said class instructor Fred Miller. “We want to get them off ‘auto’ and learn to control motion and depth of field.”

Miller said the class will be most helpful to those with digital SLRs and other high-end adjustable cameras. Modes and menus, f-stops, shutter speeds, ISO, electronic flash, lighting and composition are to be covered in discussions and demonstrations. Participants are to bring their cameras.

Class locations and dates are:

Miller is a writer and photographer who has used photography personally and professionally for more than 40 years in photojournalism, public relations and freelance photography. He taught camera use and darkroom technique in a college credit course. Currently he is communications coordinator for the National Network of Digital Schools and is adviser to the PA Cyber Student Photography Club.
