Learning Photography

Local Photographer and Artist Leanne Cole is teaching some photography classes this coming semester at the Nillumbik Living & Learning.

scclass3006Leanne goes through the basics of using a DSLR for particular styles of photography and then the classroom is left behind as the students go out to photograph the theme for that day. Leanne believes that the best way to learn photography is to actually do it and take photos.

Architectural Photography is on Saturday 19th of October, from 10am to 1pm.
