Ferry Building: Learn to take Better Digital Photos by Digital Wandering

August 25, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Digital Wandering: The Waterfront

What is Digital Wandering?

Are you looking to get better with your digital camera? Want that better selfie? Are you a bit of a shutterbug looking to meet other shutterbugs?

Digital Wandering is a fun event where teaching meets social. Each event we travel to a new fun photogenic spots around the Bay Area and learn aspects of digital photography. One event we may be learning about flower photography in Golden Gate Park, the next event we may be snapping candid urban pictures in the Mission. You’ll learn from photography professionals and people who have experience teaching at colleges and universities around the Bay Area. The event is a heaping spoonful of learning mixed in with a generous splash of social-fun and a sprinkle of history, all-swirled together for a fun experience!

Tickets are $30 per session
