Grab your camera and show up for one, some or all of the digital photography classes offered at the Orange Beach Arts Center.
Each Saturday through December 11, 2010 (except Thanksgiving weekend), you can learn a specific technique of photography and its presentation. Maybe you feel like an expert in certain aspects of this artistic genre, but some other skills could use a little tweaking. Or maybe you’ve never really tried to take pictures but would like to find out if it’s something you would enjoy pursuing. Either way, the class offerings will open your eyes—and your shutters—to a whole new level of ability.
