Photography class meets every third Tuesday at Prescott Public Library

Photographers would like to spend their time in the field creating works of art rather than spending hours in front of a computer bring their vision to life. They are always looking for ways to become more efficient in processing their images. LightRoom and PhotoShop are effective tools for managing photo catalogs, but that software takes time to utilize. Yavapai Digital Arts and Photo Club is delighted to bring to Prescott Mr. Steve Dell. His program “Taking the Work out of your Workflow” covers various techniques in LightRoom and/or Camera Raw to streamline and simplify one’s workflow. It’s quite basic and should appeal to a broad audience of beginning and intermediate shooters. Experienced photographers will also find helpful information. Dell is an experienced professional photographer with extensive travels throughout North America and Europe. Moving to Arizona in 2003 Steve began impressing the photographic public with his photography of the Desert Southwest. Steve currently spends his time in nature, wildlife and landscape photography while helping the photo community through his efforts with camera clubs, founder and lead instructor of the Creative Cloud for Photographers Meetup group in Tucson. His focus is helping attendees improve their digital darkroom skills. Steve also does quite a bit of photo contest judging and he makes informative and inspirational presentations to clubs throughout Arizona. He also has started leading photo workshops in various areas in the Southwest. Yavapai Digital Arts and Photo Club meets the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Founders Suite at the Prescott Public Library. At each meeting members of the club will introduce new products and information concerning the field of photography as well as a member competition and a program of interest to photographers and digital artists. Visitors and guests are welcome to attend. For more information:
