Event Details

Become a better photographer and stop using your camera's "Auto" mode in 1 evening.

Have you ever wondered why after spending hundreds of dollars on the latest cameras you still can't get photos you're really proud of? We're not talking about the party snapshots you post on Facebook, but stunning landscapes that can be considered fine art and grab attention for longer than 5 seconds.

Learn to capture beautiful photos and never miss a memory again.

This 3 hour class is a crash course in digital photography. Taught in our Palo Alto studio (in groups of 20-25 students), you'll learn what all those knobs and dials on your DSLR do, the settings to use in any lighting condition, and even what kind of camera to buy if you don't already have one. You'll understand concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field and shutter speed, and probably never want to use the "automatic mode" again.

No prior experience or camera equipment is necessary to attend. Just a desire to improve your photography skills. Take this class for yourself or gift it to a friend who's got a photographic itch to scratch.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What's the class schedule?
    This is a 3 hour class held on Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-1pm, and some weeknights from 7pm-10pm. The dates are scheduled approximately 1 month in advance, and more dates are added every few weeks.

  2. What's the format of this class?
    It's a group class held in an indoor classroom setting in groups of 20-25 students.

  3. I already have some photography experience from high school, or just from playing with my camera. Will this class be useful for me?
    Yes, it could be a good refresher for you to consolidate all the bits and pieces of knowledge you've picked up over the years. You'll also find plenty of inspiration (in the form of some beautiful photos) to get back into photography if you haven't done it in a while. You get to ask any burning questions to a professional photographer. And it's a great way to spend an afternoon in the company of other beginners and amateurs. However, if you already have a good handle on things like shutter speed, aperture, ISO and manual mode, this class is probably going to be too basic for you.

  4. What kind of camera do I need to attend this class?
    Bring whichever camera you currently own. No need to buy anything special or fancy for this class. We explain the differences between simple point & shoot cameras and DSLRs, so you'll be better informed about what kind of camera to buy, should you decide to upgrade your current one.

  5. What else should I bring to class?
    Anything you need to take notes on (pen, paper, iPad, laptop etc) and a snack or drink.                  WINE- You can order from the Club's wine list, or bring your own for a $7.50 corkage fee
