  Basic Digital Photography Series

These classes are for you if you just acquired your first digital camera, have owned one for a while and are disappointed in your results, or want to move beyond auto functions and snap-shots or just want to refresh your skills.

This series of three classes plus field exercise covers everything from an introduction into digital photography to important camera settings, and how to start taking a good picture no matter what your subject.

You'll learn how to start controlling light, color, and atmosphere while learning the controls of your camera. Yes, you and your camera will finally become friends! The series is designed to move you, step-by-step from fundamental principals to being able to take control of your camera’s various modes and settings (especially manual mode) – creating the image you want rather than accepting whatever the camera makes.

Basic as well as advanced concepts in creative composition are presented providing a foundation for creating more interesting and powerful images. The material is presented in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner.

Class size is limited to allow individualized hands-on instruction with you and your camera. Constructive and friendly image-sharing sessions will provide valuable insight on ways you can improve your pictures.

Required: A DSLR or point-and-shoot digital camera. The main thing is that your camera has a setting: Manual Shooting Mode or something with a similar name. Most cameras have this. If you have questions about your camera, please contact us using the form on the right sidebar.

Previous Attendees: We've reorganized the material and divided it into smaller segments while adding more hands-on time. You're invited to attend some or all of these workshops.
