Building Blocks of Basic Photography

Do you want to understand the basics of 35 mm and digital cameras? Are you looking to learn more about shutter speeds and f-stops? This course covers the basic fundamental principles of photography. Starting with the basic exposure controls, we move on to many other topics including camera functions and modes, different lenses and what they do and we finish with exploring basic composition for taking better photographs. We will even take a look at the operation of your camera, so bring it along! This workshop is designed for adjustable cameras. The simplest pocket point and shoot cameras will not be discussed, although photographers with those cameras are welcomed. Lunch break from 12:30-1:30 pm. Fee $69

Shutter Speed and F-Stop Workshop

The best way to learn about these two very important aspects of photography is to use them and then review your work. So bring your cameras to this workshop and get ready to better your knowledge of these two skills. In the first part of the workshop we will go over the basics of both before heading out to take photographs. After taking photographs using our new knowledge we will come back to class and take a look at them to see how well we've applied what we've learned. Bring a thumb drive to save you photos, and your camera's USB cord to download your photos to a computer. If you have a tripod, bring that as well. Fee $49
