Photography for Beginners—Informal Workshop and Outdoor Shoot

Sep 28, 2018 05:27PM

Valley photographers MiMi, Jack, Tim, Mark and Kathy have photographed landscapes and people from Arizona to the Mediterranean, crisscrossing America, west to east and north to south, exploring national parks and urban landscapes and examining subjects in those environments through portrait-style close-up photography. The quintet of photographers volunteer for a day at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park each month, sharing their camera skills and coaching beginners. This month’s informal workshop and outdoor shoot takes place Sunday, October 14, at 9 a.m.

The goal is to share a few basic camera lessons while photographing the gardens. These photo walks include time for participants to learn basic camera functions ranging from aperture and exposure to white balance. In addition, participants will be able to ask their specific questions in a supportive small group, each with a friendly camera coach whose goal is to put the fun in camera functions and eliminate aspects of photography that can be intimidating to beginners.

Cost: Free with $12.50 adult daily admission (admission is free to annual members and Arizona State Parks pass holders). Location: 37615 U.S. Hwy. 60, Superior. To RSVP, contact MiMi at 480-319-2229 or [email protected]. For more information on this event and other Arizona State Parks events, visit
