Winter 2024 Photo Classes Open for Registration

I have a new slate of photography classes scheduled for January and February 2024 at the Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula, Montana. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or experienced photographer, there is a course to help you improve your pictures and have fun.

Nearly everyone has a cell phone with a camera. Get tips to improve your shots in Take Better Pictures with Your Smartphone. Learn how to control focus, adjust exposure and use special effects like Panorama and Portrait modes. Both Android phones and iPhones are welcome in this class.

If you get a new camera for Christmas or already have one you don't know how to use, Getting to Know Your Digital Camera is the perfect place to start. Spend one Saturday to learn how to get better pictures by taking your camera off the Auto setting.

Beyond the Basics: Learning More About Your Digital Camera covers additional settings for better pictures of people, landscapes, buildings, sports, close-ups and night scenes. One Saturday will help you learn even more of what your camera can do to help you make great photos.

After you have the basics in hand, a variety of other photo courses is available to you. Improve your winter pictures with class presentations and field trips in Winter Nature Photography from Start to Finish. Explore creative possibilities in Introduction to Black & White Photography. Or challenge yourself to produce interesting photos of winter cityscapes, abstracts, and animals in snow in Exploring Photo Ideas #9. All these courses are open to phone and dedicated cameras.

Read descriptions, dates & times in the online catalog to select your favorite courses ahead of time. Then be ready when registration opens online at 7:00am on November 27, 2023, at Or you can register by phone beginning at 9:00am on November 27, 2023, by calling 406-549-8765.
