New Classes start January 9th, 2018
I am excited to announce the next photography course offering. Classes start January 9th, 2017 and run every Tuesday until February 2nd, 2018.
This course is designed to help anyone with a camera take better photos. To participate, it is useful to have a digital camera that allows manual settings and has a hot shoe. Ideally, this would be a dSLR camera.
An Introduction to Photography
This introductory course explores everything from learning your equipment right up to getting creative exposures and post-processing using Adobe Lightroom. The goal of this class is to teach the photography basics, both from a technical and an artistic standpoint. You will gain a thorough understanding of how a camera works, avoid the most common mistakes, utilize creative composition, and learn efficient ways to store, organize and digitally enhance your images. By the end of this course, you will have the confidence properly use a digital camera to create better images.
Topics will be explored through classroom instruction, demonstration, image sharing and hands-on exercises in a studio setting. They will include:
Getting familiar with the camera and its accessories, how to handle them, how they work
‘The Photographic Triangle’ of aperture, shutter and ISO: How to properly expose a photo
Making it look pro: creating effects with your settings and lenses
