April 2nd our guest speaker and presenter is Jennifer Costello. She has been a wedding and portrait photographer for 18 years, capturing 500+ weddings and 200+ portraits. In 2011, Jennifer created Portland Photo Tour as a different way to learn photography than was traditionally being offered. Since then, she has had the pleasure of instructing 2000+ students and still counting! Jennifer offered to teach a class on the more technical aspects of photography, camera settings, etc. If you want to take control over your camera instead of relying on automatic settings, you should attend!
