Photography Basics: The Thoughtful Approach

Everyone is welcome to a free two-part photographer presentation at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Sundays, January 29 and February 4.

Think before shooting. Often the difference between a snapshot and a photograph is the amount of pre-thought that goes into shooting. This will be a short basic photography course to discuss how pre-shot decisions impact camera settings and shooting to yield the final outcome. The topics for discussion will include over-riding concepts (objectives and story lines), file formats, the holy trinity of exposure (aperture, speed and ISO settings, and their impact), focus and composition.

The two sessions will be led by local photographer Richard Van Inwegen from 2:00 to 4:00 pm in the library conference room. Walk-ins are welcome but registration is appreciated. Call the library at 508-758-4171.
