If you received a digital camera as a recent gift or have one going unused in your closet, then this eight hour course is the ideal way to enhance your photographic skills while having fun. Unlike other in-person basic photography training in the area, this class is strictly limited to provide you with more one-on-one time with the instructor! Take your photography to the NEXT LEVEL!

All you need is a DSLRs, Mirrorless or Point & Shoot camera with Aperture Priority (A or Av on your mode dial) and Shutter Priority modes (S or Tv on your mode dial)and a lens.  The course is a great refresher for someone who has not been using a camera for a while, or as an introduction for the novice. Whatever your skill level or camera type, this course will have you quickly taking better photos.

You will learn:

  • how to download images to a computer,
  • what accessories you REALLY need to take better care of camera and lenses,
  • how to resize images,
  • how to achieve better exposures,
  • how to avoid redeye,
  • color space,
  • white balance settings,
  • and more.

You will also learn about:

  • digital noise (and how to minimize it),
  • self-timer functions and,
  • Aperture priority,
  • Shutter priority,
  • what ISO is, and
  • the relationship between aperture, shutter and ISO.

This is primarily a hands-on course, so bring your camera, its manual, lenses, fresh spare batteries and extra blank memory cards to every class. Also, we will review and critique homework images in class, which is also the best way to learn how to avoid mistakes and correct them if they occur. Q&A sessions augment the lecture and homework assignments.

Saturday sessions run from 9 AM to 11 AM and 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM on two consecutive weekends. Evening sessions run for four weeks from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
