Dana Wiggins leads photography classes

Artist Dana Wiggins will be teaching a four-day photography class the week of July 14, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday in the Allen’s Market Building, the registration fee is $65. The class will focus on the beginning photographer.

According to Wiggins, “We are going to take you through the mechanics of your camera first. You will learn also, just how easy it is to shoot a manual exposure.” Through Dana's unique teaching style and informative critiques, you will understand the relationship between f/stops, shutter speeds and ISO.  During the course students will also learn how to adjust the autofocus on their camera.

If you are not shooting consistently perfect exposures or if you don't understand why some exposures work and others don't, then this course is for you.  This course will teach you all about the creative use of shutter speed from freezing action to implying motion.

Andalusia Farm Blog: A thoroughly modern woman
This past week, Andalusia welcomed our new media intern Kayla Doetsch (www.kaylajohanna.com), a mass communications student from Georgia College and State University. Over the next few months, Kayla will be helping to ramp up Andalusia’s social media interaction – posting her photographs and videos to our various sites. As Kayla explores the different ways to involve Andalusia with social media, we could not help but wonder what Flannery would have thought of all our endeavors.  We are not the first to follow this line of purely speculative inquiry – Paige Henson of The Telegraph, and Mark Jurgensen, Andalusia’s former Visitor Services Manager and intrepid blogger, both delved into the subject in November, 2013 (http://andalusiafarm.blogspot.com/2013/11/flannery.html).
