I will be offering two beginning photography workshops on Saturdays, Feb. 19 and Feb. 26, from 10 a.m. until noon at the Extension Office. I have been reworking the sessions trying to make them less technical. We will cover camera basics, composition and managing the pictures after you take them. The workshops are free and please bring your camera and the owner’s manual with you.
