Travel Photography with Roger Maki
Photographers of all skill levels and with any type of camera are invited to attend this workshop on Saturday October 21, from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The objectives of this workshop are to enable participants to create travel photographs that are better than mere snapshots; to know how to use their camera settings and features to control the photographic process; and to identify opportunities for photographs that may have been overlooked in the past.
Admission is free for DCA members, $20 for non-members. Space is limited – reservations advised. Call DCA at 410-228-7782. Participants should bring a bagged lunch and snacks along with their camera and user manuals.
