Saturday morning, 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

The January 6th class is full. Next class:



 Amherst, NH



What to do if the class isn't currently scheduled:

If you want to attend this class but find that there isn't one currently scheduled, do not lose hope. Instead, please scroll to the bottom of the page and sign up anyway. The class is run on an as-needed basis, and we will schedule the next one as soon as we know that there is interest in it. But we won't know you're interested unless you sign up.

This class is for you if:

• Some of your pictures turn out really nice and others don’t, and you'd like to get more good ones.

• You read the instructions that came with the camera and found them more confusing than helpful.

• You love photography and would like to have more fun pursuing it.

• You are looking to get a digital camera and don’t know how to decide what would be a good one for you.

• You have photographed a lot in the past and were used to using film, but now want to transition to a digital camera.


What you will learn:

We will look at different camera types and talk about the strength and weaknesses of each and why they may matter to you.

We will talk about all the different gizmos, like SD-Cards and what the numbers on your battery mean.

We'll look at the different modes your camera offers and when to use them. Hopefully, demystifying some of the confusion that may exist.

We'll look at the 4 steps involved to take a photo.

We will look at the 5 most common mistakes people make when they take a picture and how you can avoid them.

... and much more!

What to do next:

If you would like to sign up, you can do so right here on this page. All you need to do is fill out the form below with your name and contact info. While the course is free, we do need you to register so that we can get an accurate headcount. If you don't register, we may still have a seat for you, but we cannot guarantee it.

Once you sign up, you'll receive an email saying thank you, telling you where to find us and what to expect next. We are answering your registration by hand. So, if we don't get to it right away, please be a little patient with us. If you don't see our response within 72 hours, please check your spam box. If you didn't receive a response gently bump us.

Seating is limited.
To reserve your seat in this class, please register below.

A word about seating:

We try to be the good guys - and believe me, we are - but sometimes we get overwhelmed. Especially when we offer free classes. We ask everyone to let us know if they are unable to attend a class. Most do, and for that we are grateful. But some do not. So, we always seem to find ourselves with open seats and a waiting list with people on it who would have loved to join us.

That's why we send emails asking you to confirm your interest and availability when the class is scheduled. (Sometimes more than once, and, for that, we apologize in advance.)

That being said, we do our best not to overbook and to be very sure to confirm each seat that's been spoken for. However, so far, there always have been some open seats in this class. If you've been wait-listed for a scheduled class but would like to take the risk of showing up on the morning of the class to see if we had some no-shows, that is up to you. There may not be a seat available. But if there is space, we'll gladly let you in.

When you sign up we'll send you an email to confirm. If you do not hear from us within 48 hours, please call us. If the class is canceled for any reason, you will be notified via email. From time to time, we videotape our classes, so it is possible that you will be recorded while studying with us.
Warning: On rare occasions we do run out of chocolate chip cookies.

Based on availability, your registration reserves your seat in the next Intro to Digital Photography class in our Amherst, NH location. If you have your camera already, bring it and the instruction booklet that came with it. If you don't, just bring an open mind and your sense of humor. - If no class is scheduled, we'll put you on the waiting list.
