Essex Library: Wondering how to use the many settings on your camera? The number of adjustments can be overwhelming! Beginning photographers and anyone who wants to learn how to take better pictures with a point-and-shoot or high-end adjustable camera are invited to join instructor Richard Spearrin in his two-part workshop series, Basic Principles of Photography. The first workshop covers the elements that make a great photo, including exposure, lighting, focus, and composition. Return for the second workshop to level up your shots with information about capturing movement, light streaks, extreme close-ups, and more. The first workshop will be held on Saturday, February 25, 1:00-2:30. Use what you learn and take some great photos before returning for the second workshop on Saturday, March 11, 1:00-2:30. The second workshop is a follow-up to the first, but attendance at both classes is not required. The workshops are in person for photographers age 16-99 years at the Essex Library, 33 West Avenue, Essex, Connecticut.

Instructor Richard Spearrin, from Essex, started learning the successful elements of photography during his high school years working for a small CT newspaper. As a member of the CT Valley Camera Club Steering Committee, he arranges photoshoots for the camera club and mentors beginning photographers. He exhibits at area venues, and his photographs have been used in local magazines as well as a DEEP publication. Mr. Spearrin believes that a good photograph is based on the heart, eye, and soul of the photographer.

These workshops are FREE and open to the public. Enrollment is limited and registration is required so that the instructor can provide individual assistance to participants.
