INTRODUCTION TO DSLR PHOTOGRAPHY & CREATING BETTER PHOTOS
5 Reasons why someone you know should take this class:
1. They finally have that fancy new DSLR, but they don't understand what all those dials and buttons are do.
2. Their DSLR has become an expensive point and shoot camera because they only use the program modes.
3. They want to create better photos, but don't understand the basics of DSLR photography and basic composition.
4. They want to know why they should use a lens other than the kit lens that came with the camera.
5. They want to learn ways to find a single image in the thousands that they are going to capture.
Everyone wants to capture photos to remember what they did, where they went, and what they saw. Initially it looks easy; pick up the camera, point it at the scene and push the button. The image is captured for eternity. But later, as you looked at the image, you started noticing that the scene looks a little washed out or the image is blurry when you wanted an image that is sharp as a tack. You may ask yourself, “How can I do it better?” This class will help you answer that question.
In the first and second parts you’ll learn about the camera and review some of the technical stuff such as aperture and shutter speed settings and camera basics such as ISO, white balance, focus modes, depth of field, lenses and their effects, RAW or JPEG file types, and a general workflow that allows you to manipulate an image from capture to print.
In the third part, you’ll have some fun and learn about the rules of composition and a few simple techniques for creating better photos, be presented with a pre-shoot checklist, the general rules of composition, and some shooting techniques for creating more interesting images.
The fourth part will present workflow options, what it is, how to create it and what a consistent workflow will do for you and your images. With available time, there’ll be a workflow demo and discuss some of the applications used in that workflow.
There are three prerequisites for this class.
A digital single lens reflex (DSLR) camera with an interchangeable lens.
Familiarity with your camera’s manual prior to the first session. Bring it with you to the first session.
Bring 2-4 images that you like to the first session. They can be your images or someone else’s that you like. We’ll critique them and determine why you like them and what makes the image interesting.
