Digital Photography 1: Basic Camera Tools  

Are you ready to get past the basics of using the camera to take control? In this class we’ll explore ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and depth-of-field. Other areas such as white balance, composition and lenses (focal length) will also be covered. This class will alternate between the classroom (demonstrations and looking at everyone’s photographs) and hands-on shooting in the field. Be ready for regular class assignments. Jim’s Photo Cheat Sheet will be our main text (2 pages, at Jim’s web site: http://photokaboom.com/photography/pdfs/photo_cheat_sheet.pdf). You will also find there a 122-page book for reference: (http://photokaboom.com/index_b_Beechers_Handouts.htm). Any digital camera is okay. You’ll get more out of the class if the shutter can be changed on your camera (look for shutter-priority in the manual, or either S or Tv on a dial or screen on your camera). Bring your camera's manual if you have one. Make sure the battery is charged and that there’s space on the memory card. Got a question? Ask the teacher, Jim Beecher, at http://www.photokaboom.com/ask_Jim.php.
