Talk on Understanding, Using Your Digital Camera, Saturday Morning

ESSEX – The various buttons and modes on your digital camera can be overwhelming and the manual can make learning photography even more frustrating.  The simple answer for many is to put the dial on “Auto” and to snap away, but even that doesn’t seem to cut it sometimes.

On Saturday, Feb. 27, from 10:30 a.m. to noon, local photographer Ashley Gustafson Eng is returning to the Essex Library to guide us through the mysterious buttons on our digital cameras.

Learn to take full advantage of the technology in your hands in a class designed to kick off your photography. You’ll learn what each mode on your dial is used for and how to best apply it to your photography. Additionally, the class will cover the basics and buttons used for exposure and create an understanding of how to use shutter speed, aperture and ISO to capture beautiful photographs.

Ashley Gustafson Eng is a local photographer specializing in weddings and portraiture. Discovering her passion for photography nine years ago, she has been developing her skills since. Capturing moments and memories for their clients in the Northeast and beyond, Ashley and her husband Tim have been building their business, Visual Appeal Studios, for five years.

Admission to this program is free and open to all. Advance registration is suggested; call (860) 767-1560 to register or for more information. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue.
