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.
When is the last time you printed your pictures? Are you convinced you can't make printed images look as good as those done in a lab? What are you doing with the empty wall space in your home?! The time has come to tame digital printing! With the low price of excellent quality digital printers, what was once an elite craft is now much more manageable for the average photographer. This course briefly covers the basics questions of printing, including editing suggestions, color management tools and settings, paper styles and finishes, printing recommendations, and troubleshooting on how to avoid those nasty pitfalls that can occur along the way. Whether you use Canon, Epson or HP, the concepts in this course remain the same. While the time is limited, we invite you to bring one or two potential images with you (on a memory card or thumb drive) that may be used in the class for demonstration. Enrollment: 4-10 Students This course is offered in our Melrose store classroom.

About Melrose, MA
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.
