Several individuals jumped at the opportunity to participate in a photography class taught by professional photographer and community partner, Joe Damone. Joe is a graduate of New York Institute of Photography who hails from NYC and is also a resident of Andes, NY. He shared his love of the art of photography with others by providing 2 sessions of 6 workshops each at The Arc of Delaware County.
Photo “rookies” as well as more experienced photographers whom have exhibited works in local galleries and other venues gained knowledge about the art of photography during the workshops. They learned the basics of digital photography, including picture composition, lighting, cropping, taking portrait photos, and many other techniques. The class visited several locations to experience taking photos in natural settings such as a farm and a covered bridge in Hamden, NY.
The photography program is so successful that a third workshop program is scheduled to begin on January 6th. With the colder weather, this class will be having indoor opportunities for photo shoots including a church in Delhi, the Delaware County Historical Association and the Heart of the Catskills Humane Society.
Photography can provide a lifelong conduit for creative expression and offers personal satisfaction and appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us. Bring some sunshine into your winter day by viewing photos taken during the summer/fall session of the photography class: Gems from Photography Class
