UNM-LA News:

The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos (UNM-LA), Community Education Department announced today that it plans to add a second section of the popular Beginning Digital Photography class to handle the overflow from the Monday evening class. The new session will meet 6-8 p.m., Wednesday evenings beginning Feb. 19, running through April 30.

UNM-LA Community Education Director, Eva Artschwager said, “The high level of interest in the class indicates the growing popularity of digital photography.” Artschwager added that many people may have received digital cameras as Christmas gifts and are now interested in learning how to use them.

The instructor for the class is Jim Caffrey, a professional photographer and photo tour guide based in Jemez Springs.

This course will cover the basics of digital photography, including shutter speed, aperture, and file formats. Students will apply what they learn to landscape, portrait, and macro photography. Previous experience in photography is not required and a memory stick or card reader is recommended.

Those wishing to take the class are encouraged to register right away. The cost of the class is $140.
