Shutterbug alert: Balsam Mountain Trust in Sylva will hold a digital photography class Sept. 24, from 3 p.m. until sunset.
Students will learn both composition and digital “darkroom” techniques. There will be both classroom instruction and a field trip to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The instructors are Waynesville residents Michael Skinner and Ed Kelly, both outdoor enthusiasts and talented photographers.
You’ll need your own camera, memory card, and please do wear clothing appropriate to the season and for a field trip. Only six students or fewer will be in the class; cost is $65 each. Held at Balsam Mountain Preserve in Jackson County.
