1) Learning more about the functions on the camera.
2) How to utilize the functions of the camera to create better landscape images.
3) Learning some basic rules of composition to improve image quality.
Stukel will take his class to various locations in the area to give them the experience of photographing outdoors.
Every student who takes the photography class will display three of their photos in the art exhibit. The 36 photographs taken by Stukel’s students will be displayed in the museum library, the front lobby and throughout the museum. Each student will be responsible for the mounting or framing their own photographs.
