For the first time in years, free photography classes are back at Abt and open to the public. These complimentary electronic “How To” classes are a tradition at Abt Electronics and we’re glad to welcome them back for the summer (along with weekend grilling demos). Read on to learn more about all of our summer photography classes!
Digital Camera Basics
This course focuses on transitioning from taking snapshots using a smartphone to making the most of a digital camera. Students will learn all about how to manage photo storage, frame composition, and the correct ways to start off when using a new camera. You’ll find tips and tricks to help you learn the ins and outs of your device, whether it’s completely new or you’ve been meaning to take a deeper dive. Abt’s experts will help you with expertise tailored to fit your needs. Bring your digital camera, accessories and manual.
Date, Time and Location: First Thursday of the month: 5:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. in the Inspiration Studio Conference Room
