Beginning photography class begins Feb. 27

CROSSVILLE — No matter how new or sophisticated the camera, producing a successful photograph also depends on the technical skill and experience of the photographer. Artist/instructor Bob Stephenson will be offering a beginning photography class at the Plateau Creative Art Center (PCAC). The three-session class is scheduled for three successive Thursday mornings (Feb. 27 and March 6 and 13) from 9 a.m. to noon.

In Stephenson’s class, the participants will learn basic camera operation including shutter and aperture priority rather than depending on the “auto” setting. They will also learn how shutter speed, aperture and ISO speed work together to determine exposure. In addition, participants will cover the characteristics of light and color theory.

Each student will take a picture, upload it to the computer, process the image using Photoshop software and print their photo. This class will take beginning photographers from start to finish, camera to print.

The cost of Stephenson’s class is $51 for members of the Art Guild or $66 for non-members. Class participants should bring their cameras plus the camera instruction manual to the first class session. If participants don’t have a camera, they should not buy one until after the first class session.

Stephenson is an award-winning artist/photographer who has been studying photography and perfecting his skills for many years. His recent book, Wildflowers: a Celebration of Beauty, includes many of his photographs followed by a section on tips for improving photographs. His book is available at the PCAC.

Register for the beginning photography class at the Plateau Creative Arts Center, 451 Lakeview Dr.(off Peavine Rd.). For more information or to enroll and pay by credit card, call 707-7249. This class and many other fine art classes are offered at the PCAC by the Art Guild at Fairfield Glade, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and an equal opportunity provider.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
