Improve your photo skills with “The Art of Close-up Photography” classes

Whether you're a novice with a new camera or an experienced photographer, get more out of your camera with a six-week class, The Art of Close-up Photography, at the Renaud Spirit Center.

The Art of Close-up Photography, a new course for ages 16 and up that begins on Tuesday, January 8, will cover the basics and finer points of photographing small items such as jewelry, coins, flowers and insects. The six-week course will meet at the Renaud Spirit Center (RSC)  from 7 – 9 p.m. with professional photographer Garry Rose, who will show students how to get great photos without expensive, specialized equipment. Class discussion will include lighting, backgrounds, depth-of-field, cropping, and composition. The cost is $48 for O'Fallon residents and $54 for non-residents.

Two additional O’Fallon Parks and Recreation photo courses are coming up: “Intro to Photography,” which begins February 26, and “Nature Photography,” which starts on April 16, and includes a field trip. 

The deadline to enroll in The Art of Close-up Photography is December 31. To register:
