Sign-up is still under way for a course in basic digital photography camera operation and skills being offered from 6-9 p.m. on Thursdays June 7-28 at the Obion County Public Library in Union City.
The class is sponsored by the University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Online Studies.
Basic digital photography will allow participants to make the most of their digital camera operations and use its advantage to improve their photographic skills.

After years of photographing major crime scenes, evidence and surveillance targets, he began studying fine art imaging at the University of Tennessee and Rocky Mountain School of Photography and under the mentorship of three acclaimed wildlife and nature photographers.
