Aspiring photography enthusiasts are invited to learn the basics of manual camera setup, photographic technique and artistic vision in these five-session courses led by professional photographer, Dave Ficke. 

Each course will help photographers understand their camera and settings including white balance, depth of field, exposure compensation and histogram. Dave will also discuss lenses and ways to ensure safety while on location.

Both courses combine an online lecture component with practice at in-person meetings on location.

Introduction to Landscape Photography begins February 26, and Introduction to Wildlife Photography begins February 27. The cost for each course is $125 to the public; $100 to Redlands Camera Club members.

Sponsored by Redlands Camera Club, course details and a sign-up portal can be found on the website:
