Get your photos on at the PDCCC Hobbs Suffolk Campus

~ Award winning photographer Shirley Whitenack will teach two classes ~

Paul D. Camp Community College’s (PDCCC) Division of Workforce Development will offer a unique photography class that will leave students confident in their picture taking abilities.
“This class will unleash your creativity as you learn to take control of your camera,” said instructor and award winning photographer Shirley Whitenack. The same class will be taught once for those who would like to take daytime classes and again in the evenings later in March.
Beginning to Intermediate Digital Photography will be held in a 4-week consecutive session on Thursdays, March 2 to 30, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The cost for this class is $140. In addition, Whitenack will teach the same consecutive session on Thursdays from March 7 to 28, from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. The cost for the night class is $115. Both will be held at the PDCCC Hobbs Suffolk Campus, 271 Kenyon Road.
The class will include information about basic camera mechanics, fundamentals of exposure and compositional techniques through traditional lecture, demonstration and on-location photography. In addition, students will learn how to fully utilize directional light, determine proper exposure and exploit depth of field to create dramatic compositions.
“Students will leave the class with working knowledge of their digital camera and the confidence to fully utilize it to capture outstanding images,” Whitenack said.
Participants need to bring their fully charged camera, instruction manual and digital media. For more information, call 757-569-6050 or email
