Event Details

Become a better photographer in just 1 class! Have you ever wondered why, after spending hundreds of dollars on the latest cameras, you still can't get photos that really make you proud? We're not talking about the party snapshots you post on Facebook, but stunning, well-exposed landscapes that can be considered fine art.

This 2.5-hour class is a crash course in digital photography, taught in small groups of around 20 students. You'll learn what all those knobs and dials on your DSLR do, the optimal settings to use in any lighting condition, and what kind of camera to buy if you don't already have one. You'll understand concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field, ISO and shutter speed. You’ll probably never want to use the "automatic mode" again.

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

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What's the class schedule?
    This is a 2.5 hour class held most Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-12:30pm, and some weeknights from 6:00pm-8:30pm. 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 around 20 students.

  3. I already have some photography experience.  Will this class be useful for me?
    Yes, a class 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 picked up a camera in a while. You’ll have an opportunity to ask a professional photographer any burning questions. 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, then Photo Walk and Adobe Lightroom Class are a better fit 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.
