Michelle’s goal is to help you take great photographs. Great photos straight out of the camera-not by using software.
Her workshop is interactive & taught in easy to understand everyday language, geared toward adults- whose brains are full already.
The workshop is “learn by doing.” Share information, help each other and spend the class with your camera in hand.
You will practice shooting and the goal is to have fun!
As a Photography Instructor, Michelle Palys helps YOU learn how to use the important buttons and settings on a Digital Camera (they aren’t all important and many aren’t used often). Click here for her website. Passion. Commitment. Excellence.
