Learn how to take memorable portraits outside of a studio during a free photography class at Mentor Public Library.

You don’t need an expensive studio to take great photos of people or pets.

Learn how to make the world your studio with a free photography class from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 23, at our Main Branch.

Photographer Steven Manchook will teach you how to take environmental portraits. He’ll show you how to take memorable photos of people and even animals without the trappings of a studio. You’ll learn how to use natural light and minimal equipment (maybe with an added flash or reflector) to transcend the simple snapshot.

Manchook will use several examples – both before and after post-processing – to illustrate his suggestions.

The class is free and open to all. We only ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247 to reserve your spot in the room.

By the way, we also offer several online photography tutorials that are free to watch with your library card.

You can learn from National Geographic photographers on Hoopla. Watch:

And there are more online tutorials available on Lynda – still free with your library card. The classes include introductions for beginners, iPhone and iPad photography, weekly suggestions, and helpful courses on Photoshop and Lightroom.
