Photography Basics: Techniques and Art

Have you been using your digital DSLR or digital mirrorless camera on automatic but want to learn how to use 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 or bridge cameras; contact instructor if unsure). A tripod is recommended.  Class includes one Sunday morning and one Sunday afternoon field trip with instructor (details given in class).  Instructor's work has appeared in National Geographic publications.  See Textbook and Supply List for textbook information.
