Stop by the Carnegie Public Library to see the newest works from Creative Court House! Photos on display at the library are the work of students who participated in a Beginning and Intermediate Photography Workshop. The classes covered camera basics, aperture/shutter speed, how to use your camera settings to maximize available light using flash and reflectors, basic composition, tips and tricks for better portraits, and more!
Stop by the library or check out Court House Creative on Facebook for more information about upcoming classes. Photos will remain on display until May 27.
