Learn how to take better photos!

Three different classes are being offered- Youth Photography 101, Photography Basics (all ages), and Photography in the Parks (all ages). All classes are taught by Jeff Stroup, the official photographer for the City of Cuyahoga Falls.

The Photography Basics class is designed for people who want to get more out of their DSLR camera. You'll learn about composition, camera functions, and how to make the most of different lighting conditions. All ages are welcome, and it's encourage that everyone bring their own DSLR camera.

The Youth Photography 101 class is a great way for kids to learn the basics of composition, how to make the most of different lighting conditions, and some great tips and tricks! Different cameras will be covered from smartphones to point-and-shoots.

Photography in the Parks is equal parts social meet-up, on-site lesson, and Q&A. Get together with other photographers of all skill levels to discuss photography and take photos. Camera required, tripod recommended. All ages welcome!
