Photography Essentials: Vilna Pictures
Join award-winning photographer Nancy Katz for an afternoon of photography instruction, demonstration and shooting in a unique opportunity to photograph the Vilna before it closes for restoration. Class will focus on lighting, composition and portraiture, using the Vilna as the subject! Participants must know how to use their camera, DSLR or smartphone; this class focuses on best shooting practices and not the technicalities of individual cameras.
