Introduction to Digital Photography Workshop by Francois Cleroux

The Delta Photo Club presents a two-part workshop “Introduction to Digital Photography” by long time member and acclaimed photographer Francois Cleroux.

The classes are meant as a basic introduction for beginner photographers or as a refresher for those who wish to review the basics.

Guests are welcome for $15.00/class or $25.00 for the two, payable at the door. Classes are free for members in good standing of the Delta Photo Club. For the more experienced members of the Club, there will be a critique session with George Pierce on these dates.

When:  7:30 – 9:30 pm, at the Kin Village Recreation Centre in Tsawwassen, Wednesday September 25 and October 30th.
