In-person Photography Classes


Instructor: Gary Knight

The digital camera… so much capability that so few people fully comprehend! From learning the various camera controls to exercising the options of how and when they are best used, students in this nuts and bolts class will gain the confidence needed to capture that perfect instant. Learn to use your own digital camera or use one of the Crafts Center’s Nikon D3000 loaners in order to get the most out of this series of hands-on discussions and photo shoots. Bring your own SD card.  For more about Gary’s work, visit

• If cancellation occurs 10 or more days prior to the start of a class, a 75% refund of payment will be issued; 25% of payment is assessed for processing charge.
• If cancellation occurs less than 10 days prior to the start of a class, a refund cannot be issued unless the space can be filled. If the space is able to be filled, a 50% refund of  payment will be issued.
If you find you need to cancel out of a class you have registered for, you must drop the class via Reporter», our new online registration system
