Move beyond easy snapshots. This workshop will teach you how to make photos that pop and wow. You’ll learn out how to take advantage of your point-and-shoot’s different features, compose better images, and use basic editing techniques to make awesome prints. This workshop for budding photographers will cover all the basics of digital photography: principles of shooting, printing, digital imaging technology, and core concepts like depth of field, shutter speed, exposure and composition. Learn the fundamental skills you need to shoot and edit your own images, and print some of your best work on state of the art printers in the Photo Center’s digital lab.
Instructor: Carina A. del Rosario earned her B.A. in Communication from Santa Clara University in 1991 where, to complement her journalism studies, she taught herself photography. She continues to develop her skills with the help of mentors like Seattle-based photographer and multi-media artist John D. Pai, and the instructors and staff at Photography Center Northwest. She also studied with National Geographic Traveler Photographer Raul Touzon and Eddie Soloway (both affiliated with the Santa Fe Workshops), as well as Magnum Photographer Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb.

She freelances with non-profit and social justice organizations to provide them with a range of media services, including photography, writing, editing, training and consultation. She also founded the International District Engaged in Arts (IDEA) Odyssey Collective Gallery, which showcases visual art by emerging artists of color and those exploring culture and diversity in their work.
