Exploring Digital Photography at the Art Junction


This summer we have again offered a class on exploring digital photography at the Art Junction.

Participants have been gaining lots of hands-on experience by exploring new techniques.

Participants have been learning to look at the world around them in a new manner, through the rectangle of a view finder, exploring light and composition.

Tonight the class will meet for its third session as they continue to explore the local environment through digital photography.  All of these images were created by class participant and emerging photographer Alec Casto.
