Clifton Forge, VA (August 2, 2018) - Dabney S. Lancaster Community College has scheduled four non-credit Digital Photography courses this semester at the DSLCC Rockbridge Regional Center in Buena Vista with professional photographer Chuck Almarez, owner of “Fire and Light Gallery” in Clifton Forge, as the instructor. All classes will meet from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

The first course is Nuts and Bolts of Digital Photography, which will meet on Tuesdays, August 28 through September 18. This four week course will cover basic photography from the perspective of a digital camera. Participants will learn how the camera works, how to take a better image and how to share images online. The tuition fee is $90.

Camera Phone Magic will meet on Tuesdays, September 25 and October 2. Participants will learn the seven best tips and tricks to take better photographs with their cell phones. Although the class is designed around the iPhone 7, much of it also pertains to Androids. The tuition is $50.

Adobe Lightroom Orientation, Tuesday, October 9, is a free one-night workshop. Students will learn why they should be using Lightroom and how it fits into the image editing workflow.

Intro to Adobe Lightroom will meet on Tuesdays, October 16 through November 6. Lightroom is an organizational tool with significant editing and output capabilities. Students will learn how to import, organize, rate and tag images, and then output them in a variety of ways: print, slideshow, books, and web galleries. The tuition fee for the course is $180.

Students are asked to bring their own cameras to class, as well as a laptop, already loaded with the Adobe Lightroom software.
