KCKCC to offer digital photography class

With the 21st Century shift to digital cameras, Kansas City Kansas Community College is offering a comprehensive Digital Photography 101 class on Saturday, April 14.

Instructed by Bryan Whitehead, the class will be held from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. in Room 3450 of the Science Building on the KCKCC campus at 7250 State Avenue.

The class is designed not only for new digital cameras owners wanting to know how they work but for owners who want to know more about the many features and options or how to improve the quality of photos.

Instruction will include basic tips for improving photo quality, techniques used by professional photojournalists to create eye-catching, story-telling photos and taking the camera off “auto-pilot” to learn how to improve image quality by manipulating camera settings.

The class will conclude with time to take photos around campus and transferring them to a computer. To make the most of the class, participants need to bring a digital camera (with a charged battery) and accessories, particularly the instruction manual and computer connection cable.

There will be a break for lunch between noon and 1 p.m.

The cost is $65 ($60 for Prime Time Club members) and persons can register by phone with credit card payment at 913-288-7660; in person in the Continuing Education Building; or on-line at and clicking on Continuing Education and Spring 2012 Schedule. The class is listed under Community Education/Personal Growth.
