Camera Works: Images Worth a 1,001 Words

Local landscape photographer Cristi Canepa welcomes everyone who wants to bring their camera skills to a new level with her class “Camera Works: Exposure and Composition” on Wednesday evening, July 19, from 6:30 to 8 pm at the Manzanita Arts Emporium, 1211 South Main Street in historic Angels Camp.

Her class includes coverage in the basics of understanding the mysterious “Exposure Triangle” of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO (sensitivity of image sensor) and tips on the best ways to compose photos. Participants at all skill levels bring their own camera to class and learn how to make the most of their equipment, working directly with Canepa to create images of increased style and sophistication. The automode setting will be a thing of the past.

The cost for Cristi Canepa’s class is $30 and includes all materials. This class welcomes everyone, and due to this subject’s popularity, spaces in the class will fill quickly. Reserve a space by calling 209-728-6171 or clicking on manzapress.com. Go to the events page for the link. Use a credit card or send a check to Manzanita Arts Emporium, PO Box 460, Angels Camp, CA 95222.

Cristi Canepa makes her home in Calaveras County, and her work has been juried in an array of art show locations including Lodi, Modesto, and Sacramento. Some of her favorite pieces are proudly placed in the Manzanita Arts Emporium and Arnold’s Timeless Home Gallery. Her website sallymaephotography.com displays examples of her work that support her belief “that you cannot beat the scenery here” in the Sierra region, from Yosemite to the Foothills.

Manzanita Writers Press is a non-profit 501(c)3 creative arts organization devoted to the development and support of the literary and visual arts community in Calaveras County and the wider Sierra Foothill region.
