Ready, Aim, Fire! Um… Shoot? Um… Click.

So, you’ve gotten a new camera. Upon looking at the photos you took over the Memorial Day weekend you realize that your shots are blurry, or that those fantastic sunrises just don’t seem to have the same oomph that they did while you were standing on the beach. What to do? Take a photography workshop!

One of the many benefits of living in a major metropolitan area such as Atlanta is that it draws special events to the area. Atlanta will be one of eighteen cities in which Digital Days Photography will offer their two-day photography workshop. The workshop will be held at the downtown Sheraton hotel on Saturday June 6th (from 1pm-5pm) and Sunday June 7th (from 9am-5pm).
