Beginning Digital: A World of Discovery

February 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Beginning students meet their cameras.

Whether you’re new to photography or you’re camera is new to you, this is the class for which you’ve been looking. We’ll have a wonderful time exploring all those buttons and menu settings as we take all the guess-work out of using a digital camera. All makes and models are welcome. After we discuss topics in the classroom, it’s out to put those concepts into practice. The images you capture will delight you and all who see them. This learning experience is great fun. Don’t wait to enroll–this class always fills quickly. There are 3 Ways to Register:
1. Call 847.835.8261
2. Visit www.chicagobotanic.org/education
3. Membership and Info Desk staff are now able to take registrations during periods of relative calm

Beginning Digital Photography, February 16 — March 9, (4 Fridays), 9-12 noon.

About Jack

A classically trained musician since childhood, Jack Carlson always had the “ear” of an artist. It was only a short step to develop the artist’s “eye” as well.

The portfolio of this certified photographer reveals images that emphasize mood and composition. Their purpose is to present a feeling in addition to portrayal of person, place or thing. Sometimes that feeling is nostalgia; other times it is serenity.

Each photograph tells a story.
