Our first class will include the cane method of making polyclay beads; baking them in a small oven; and glazing the beads to ready them for your beading designs. The waxed linen cord will be used for stringing, for creating macramé enhancements, and for developing methods of connecting your beads.

Some of the many things we will cover are: 
-Get your camera out of program mode
-Improve the visual impact of your images
-Learn all about RAW and why you should ALWAYS shoot in RAW
-Histograms, what are they and why should you care about them
-Lenses, which ones to use for each situation
-Controlling Depth of Field and what the heck is Hyperfocal Distance anyway
-What types of lighting are best
-How to handle backlighting
-What type of White Balance should I use?
-Using your flash to improve your outdoor images
-Using reflectors for fill light and how they can even subtract light when you want
-The types of filters everyone should have in their bag
-Using Auto Exposure Bracketing

We're going to cover all of this in great detail plus much, much more. We'll also answer any specific questions that you may have. There will be handouts in the class covering all sorts of topics and website addresses so you don't have to remember everything but you may want to bring something along to write on anyway. We will cover a lot of ground in this class so come hungry to learn!
