I Got a New Camera for Christmas Now What?

If you know of anyone getting a new digital camera for Christmas, give them the gift of a class to learn how to use it.

It doesn’t matter how you came by your camera or how long you have had it, the Photography Committee of the Mountaineers is here to help. This will be a fun morning, approximately 4 hours, in a hands on workshop that will help you understand and demystify the use and features of your camera. We will also discuss transferring your images to a computer and cover some common basic editing techniques. We will cover Digital-SLR and Digital Point and Shoot cameras. The class instructors are members of the Photography Committee. Additional volunteers will be available to answer questions about your camera. You will need to bring your camera with fully charged batteries, memory card, and the owner’s manual.

Note: There is a fee for this class.
Mountaineer Member: $40.00 / Non Member: $50.00

Also, you MUST register on the Mountaineer website - just saying you're going here will not admit you into the class.

      Anita, you sent me an e-mail saying I hadn't signed up and paid with Mountaineers, but I did so a long time ago and have a confirmation email as proof. Perhaps others have also paid and you just don't know it.

      Wanda, I can't separate out individuals from the group mail, so I have to send to all.
