Basic Photography Class Offered in March

Basic Photography

Basic Photography

The Eastman Camera Club is sponsoring a basic photography class taught by Richard Siggins. The class will start out with learning the basics of photography – light, shutter speed, aperture and how to use them on your camera. From there we will get into color, composition, lighting, techniques and photographic gear selection. We’ll talk about some common photography challenges and how to overcome them. We will go over different photo editing packages, organizing photos, printing, and sharing online. The class will be a combination of classroom teaching, practicing our new photography skills, and reviews of photography assignments.

The class is designed for a photographer who has a DSLR, mirrorless camera, or advanced compact camera.
Classroom sessions are March 22, 27, 29 and April 3 from 6:00 PM– 8:00 PM in the Eastman Employee Center. There will be one field trip on Saturday, March 31 to practice what we have learned. The Saturday time will depend on what works best for the majority of the students. This is Easter weekend so we may move the field trip date to accommodate student’s schedules.

In every Class we will have time for:

  • Review of Homework – yes, we are in school again.
  • Problem Solving – Bring your camera and problem photos to class
  • Question and Answer

The class is open to Eastman Camera Club members. The good news is anyone can join the club by going to https://eastmancameraclub.com/ and clicking on About near the upper left of the page.

Richard Siggins is a semi-pro photographer specializing in landscape and nature photography. You can see some of his work at www.thesiggins.com
Cost – $40/person. Maximum of 14 people per class. Call Eastman Recreation Office at 423-229-3771 to sign up.

Adobe Lightroom Class

Allan Barnett and Richard Siggins will again be teaching a class on Adobe Lightroom in February 2018.

You’ve probably heard about Adobe Lightroom software and maybe you have already purchased and installed a copy.  Great!   Now, what do you do?   Sign up for the Adobe Lightroom Class offered by the Eastman Camera Club!
We’re going to have a great time learning how you can use Lightroom to manage and edit your photos.  In my opinion, Lightroom is still the best tool for digital photographers.  Unlike some other software, Lightroom was designed from the ground up for photographers.  Once you get into it you’ll find it makes perfect sense.  However, when you start Lightroom for the first time you may feel like you just sat down in the cockpit of a Boeing 777.   Don’t panic!   In just four evenings you will become familiar with most of those buttons and when / how to use each one.
Our class will be from 6:00 – 8:00 in Room 221 of the Eastman Toy F. Reid Employee Center, February 13, 15, 20 and 22.
How to sign up
Go to or call ( 229-3771) the Eastman Recreation Office in the Employee Center and ask to be put on the list for the Lightroom class in February.  You will need to pay the $60 fee up front.  The class is limited to the first 10 people to sign up.
You will need to bring a laptop with Lightroom installed.  We will be teaching from the latest Lightroom Classic CC version but older versions will be fine.
Contact me if you have any questions. – rcsiggins@gmail.com
