This 3 hour hands-on photo class will teach you the building blocks of photography.
ISO determines the sensitivity of your sensor to light. Aperture (f-stop) opens up or closes a diaphragm that determines how much light passes through the lens. Shutter Speed controls how long the light passing through the lens hits the sensor. In this beginner class you will learn how these three controls work together to achieve the overall image exposure. You will also learn how to use your camera's LCD screen and histogram to determine if you've captured a good exposure or if you need to make adjustments.
What to Bring: Bring your DSLR camera (no point and shoot cameras) with lens, user manual (can be downloaded from the manufacturer) and your questions to class. Most of all, bring your enthusiasm and eagerness to master your camera! This class is the first step to realizing your vision with photography!
Experience Level: Beginner to Intermediate: Attendee should be familiar with the basic functions and menus of their camera
