Digital Photography 1: The Basics - North Port   

The main goal in this class is for you to understand your camera and advance from using Auto Mode to Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and eventually prepare you for Manual Mode in Digital Photography 2 Class.  You will learn ISO, aperture and shutter functions of your camera as well as Depth of Field, exposure compensation and more. Other topics include understanding and using the camera metering system to achieve properly lit images. This class will be both in the classroom and hands-on in the field. There will be regular assignments as well as constructive critiques during class. Please bring your camera, a charged battery or two, memory cards and your camera’s manual.  

If you are thinking of purchasing any equipment, you may want to wait for this class to start and I’ll give you money saving tips on where and what kind of equipment to purchase, including off camera flash units for your cameras.

 

Please download these extensive manuals, which contain much more information than the ones you receive with your cameras.

The best way to learn to take good pictures is to shoot pictures and then share positive critiques; this is how we all learn. Each week in this class, I will give you a different photography assignment, and the next week, come to class with your three best pictures on a flash drive. We'll spend part of the class looking at everyone's work. It's stimulating and inspiring to see what everyone comes up with. Make sure you have the manual for your camera. If you don't, you can download it at www.cameramanualsonline.com. Print it, or save it to a flash drive. Make sure the battery is charged.
