Christmas is coming and maybe you’re thinking about something for your camera to take your photography to the next level? We’ll get into all types of zoom lenses for certain uses, lens speed, range of sharpness or depth of field, what works and what limitations you’ll find with each, also different tripods for steady more sharp images. I’ll bring my own equipment for you to try out, and feel free to bring any of your own with your camera. As time permits, we will cover special settings involving white balance, histograms, and using exposure compensation. We’ll shoot outdoors weather permitting.
