This is a great chance to learn how to use your camera and experience the beauty of Cascade Head. We will cover the basic features of digital cameras and what all those buttons do! We will learn about exposure modes, how to choose them, how to use auto focus and how images are processed into file formats like RAW or JPEG. We will also learn about composition and practice what we are learning by photographing in the area around Sika. Participants should be prepared for some light hiking. Leave the workshop with archival prints of your favorite images.
