Photography Class - 080818

Digital Photography

So you've got a camera and you're disappointed with the results.  Or maybe you're just thinking about going digital and you want to make sure you know what to do with it.

Well if that's the case, this Class is for you.   

I'll lead you through basic photography to make sure you understand how to make a correct exposure and what to do with composition of the photograph.  We'll talk about all the camera features you need to understand to make consistently good quality photos.  That sounds really simple, and that's because I'm confident that you can be taught to take great photographs. All you need is the desire to do so, and we can do the rest together.

This Class is geared towards providing you with the basics of photography from the ground up as they relate to Digital (and Film) cameras. Here's some of the many topics we'll discuss:

  • ISO - What is it and how do I select the right ISO?
  • White Balance.
  • Handling your camera correctly.
  • Setting the camera to achieve the effect you desire in your photos (f-stop, shutter speed, etc.).
  • How and when to use a flash.
  • Using the Sun to make better outdoor portraits.
  • Using commonly available materials to produce studio quality portraits, almost anywhere.
  • Taking great photographs in some of the worst conditions.
  • How to come home from your vacation with photos that you'll want to share with everyone.
  • Getting professional looking results with a basic camera.
  • Buying the camera that best fits your needs and photographic interest.
  • Overcoming common problems with focus.
  • Using your flash to turn good pictures into great photographs.
  • How to manage your digital images and prints, so you can find them when you want to reprint them.

This is just an outline of the topics we'll discuss. We'll discuss various cameras to help you understand every topic more thoroughly. You'll have the opportunity to get your questions answered in a way that will be meaningful.

We're going to talk about photographing your friends and family, your pets, your car, your house, nature, and just about anything that you might want to photograph. If you have a camera I encourage you to bring it along so you can get practice on your own camera as we move through these topics.  If you don't have a camera yet, don't run out to buy one before the class.  You will learn a lot about what camera you'll want to buy during this class.  

This Class will run 4 nights, for 1½ hours per day.

Please come prepared with a notepad as you may want to take notes on some our discussion.  I will also provide a book for you to take with you to that covers in detail all of the topics we'll be talking about in class.

We will cover topics that are necessary for the beginner photographer to get started, as well as those to help the experienced photographer extend their technical knowledge of photography.

PLEASE WATCH FOR NEWS & UPDATES TO BE POSTED ON THIS SESSION.  You'll find the news (if any) on the right column of this listing.
