"Autumn" Photography Contest And Class


Winners of the "Autumn in Cottonwood Heights" photography contest were announced and awarded at an open house held in their honor Thursday, October 30, 2014 at the Whitmore Library.

An exhibit of photos was held at the Whitmore Library from October 3, 2014 through October 30. 

Part of the event included a photography class that was slated for Sept. 27. That class was canceled and rescheduled for Saturday, January 24, 2015 at the Whitmore Library from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Drake Busath of Busath Photography will instruct attendees on composition and lighting. In addition, a little time will be spent on how to take pictures with an iPhone, since a growing number of people are taking pictures with smart phones.
