  1. I own a camera and an extra lense which I have never used: a Canon Rebel T3i. Can you teach me to use this? I have been taking pictures for years, but with other cameras.

    • Hello Linda,
      I’m in the process of confirming class dates in our Fall semester. Meanwhile, would you be interested in a private session with Dan Reardon, our digital photography instructor? Dan is terrific !
      Thank you!
