Come learn how to take better photographs with your cellphone camera, or point and shoot camera, in a new course offered by the Desert Institute. Professional photographer and teacher, Diana Shay Diehl, who has spent over 30 years capturing images from film to digital, will focus on basic approaches to photography while making extraordinary images from the ‘ordinary’. You will learn how to overcome the limitations of cellphone and other modern cameras, produce better images as prints and for sharing on the Internet as well as learn how to ‘see’ better within a frame. Composition, the rule of thirds, exposure, and shutter speed will be discussed, as well as how to post process your images in your own devices. Examples of post-printing options will also be shared. This course will include a trip into the park and a walk about with Diana with over-the-shoulder counseling on how to improve your photography. .
