Photography: Basic Camera Skills next offered: Wednesdays, October 18, 25, November 1, 8

This very hands-on workshop helps you create great images without getting lost in technology and jargon.

Unlike a quick weekend workshop, this class meets once a week for four weeks, giving you time for you practice what you learned after each class. Our small class size allows individual instructor feedback and guidance on your assignment photos.

Four 3-hour sessions will unveil the mysteries of your camera, and give you the confidence and knowledge to progress to creative photography. Photographic examples and in-class exercises will demonstrate how your choice of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO work together to make images where you are in control.

Weather permitting, we will venture outside for shoots. Weekly assignments, and individual reviews of that work will reinforce class content and speed your progress.

Equipment

Bring your gear! In general, any camera that can record raw files, and/or that has a hot shoe for external flash is sufficient for the class. Please contact us with any questions.

To truly get the most out of this course, bring a digital single lens reflex camera (DSLR). An advanced compact camera, such as the Canon Power Shot G series or Panasonic Lumix is a good alternative.
