Beginner Photography (Weeknight sessions run 2 hours over 2 evenings- Ex. July 7th/14th; Weekend Sessions run 5 hours, including a 45-minute break for lunch) Photography is about controlling light. Come and learn how to improve your images and picture taking techniques. Offered monthly, the Basic Photography Class is a two-session lecture and hands-on interactive workshop, teaching how to use the basic camera controls; and adjusting aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings to get a proper exposure. Also covered is using aperture for depth-of-field (controlling what’s in focus in the background); stopping action with shutter speed settings; selecting the correct White Balance for color correction management. In the second session, we pull it all together with an individual practical exercise using all of the elements presented during the training session. Bring your camera with a fully charged battery. This class is offered in our Melrose store classroom.

At this event, Fuji tech rep John Haggerty will have on hand five of the Fuji medium format lenses, their tilt adapter, battery grip, and Hasselblad adapter to test out with the system. During this demo, we will also have a Phottix lighting setup and a model to test out the gear. Come test out this new system with us for a fun & photographic evening! (Don't forget to bring a memory card to save test images!)
Melrose Massachusetts was settled in the mid 18th century and since then has offered its residents scaling between the metropolis of Boston and the frontier of rural exurbia.
Melrose is mostly a residential community containing exquisite Victorian homes dating from the late 1800’s but beyond that the small city has a tradition of being self sufficient and supports housing – education – employment – health – shopping – entertainment - recreation and leisure needs of its residents.
Another vital component of the quality of life in Melrose is its open spaces. Trees line the streets and beautiful parks are dispersed in and around Melrose. The city is encircled by a “green belt” which includes the Middlesex Fells Reservation and this belt buffers it from surrounding communities.
