Going Beyond Simple Snapshots and Shooting with Most Photo Devices
(updated April 17, 2017)

As a service to LW residents who hope to take photos better than simple snapshots, the Rossmoor Camera Club and the Center for Lifelong Learning are happy to present a new Summer Series of eight basic photography classes. They are designed to address residents’ questions on how to take photographs using almost every type of device imaginable, including smart phones (no flip phones), tablets, and any type or brand of digital camera.

Each student must be able walk short distances, AND/OR to easily enter and exit a car. Bring your questions, device and its manual, along with a notebook and pen to each class.

The eight classes will be held both inside and outside of
Club House 1, on Wednesday mornings from 10:00am to Noon. Participants may choose to attend any or all of the classes. Each class is self-contained, so missing one or more will still allow students to learn about the subjects which they are able to attend:
