Photography class to be held June 18

PhotographicClass - Poole

Northwestern State University’s Office of Electronic and Continuing Education will present two basic photography classes Saturday, June 18 in Room 225 of Kyser Hall.

Basic photography will be held from 1 – 3 p.m. and will teach the skills and techniques of taking great photographs with your DSLR camera. The class will cover lighting and shooting techniques including photo composition and camera functions. This course is designed with DSLR cameras in mind, but could help those wanting to break into the field of more dynamic cameras and images. Participants will need a camera. A Nikon DSLR is preferred.

Basic photography II is from 4 – 6 p.m. This course will cover what to do once the photo has been taken. The instructor will demonstrate basic editing techniques using Photoshop that will enhance your photos. Participants can bring specific images with them for some in-class editing. Those in the class will need a camera with computer cable supplied with camera or SD card reader.

The class will be taught by Corey Poole, an area photographer and editor of the Natchitoches Parish Journal.

The fee is $30 per class or $50 for both. For more information, e-mail, visit or call (800) 376-2422 or (318) 357-6355.
