If you are new to Digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) photography, or you've had a camera for a while but need to understand how photography really works, join Colin and Marcy Murphy for a workshop that will teach you the basics of exposure, metering and white balance. You'll leave with a good understanding of photographic terminology and techniques and in addition, you will be introduced to composition principles that will help you take your photography to the next level.
