Photography Basics: Techniques and Art - Meeting Online  

Have you been using your digital DSLR or digital mirrorless camera on automatic but now would like to learn about using its full creative potential? This introductory color class will cover the basics of camera operation: f-stops, shutter speeds, iso, white balance, lenses, exposure, metering, filters, flash and more. Bring your digital DSLR or digital mirrorless camera that can be put fully on manual to class (no point and shoot cameras; contact instructor if unsure). A tripod is recommended. Instructor will provide suggestions in class for student field trip excursions on their own. Instructor’s work has appeared in National Geographic publications. The required text is Understanding Photography Field Guide by Bryan Peterson (ISBN: 978-0-8174-3225-6). Students who take this class are invited to participate in our Summer CE Student Art Show.
