Photography: Outdoor Camera Walk
Sunday, December 4, 1:30 P.M.

Don’t let a few bad photos cause your camera to collect dust on a shelf or in a drawer! Get to know your camera’s manual settings to take better outdoor photos. Start with us at 1:30 PM for a Camera Q&A in the Melrose Center where we’ll cover some basics. You can also meet us at the front of the Library at 2:45 PM to head out on a photo walk around Lake Eola for some guided practice. You’re welcome to attend either part of this meetup or come to both!
