At #LatinaGeeks we love identifying events that benefit the community and we’ve identified a great FREE event courtesy of Sony Academy. Knowing your camera is one of the keys to capturing great shots and for those that might have a great Sony camera but no idea how to use it, Sony® Academy is having free photography classes. These classes will feature tips for those just starting out to those who feel most at home with a camera in hand. The goal is to get people out of “Auto-Mode” and into exploring all the capabilities of your Sony camera.
These classes will be taught by Digital Imaging experts at two Sony Stores in California:
South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA
3333 Bristol Avenue
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
Fashion Valley in San Diego, CA
7007 Friars Road
