Class Description

Need help getting started with your DSLR or Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera? This is the perfect class for getting started.

In this class, George will cover the basics of digital photography, helping you to understand the physics of photography, so you can start taking more control of your photos. He will also offer some strategies to increase the quality of your everyday photos with some great photo tips.


Some of the topics that are covered:

- Elements of Exposure (Shutter speed, Aperture, ISO)

- What is a Digital Image? (Pixels, Resolution, Compression)

- Basics of a good image (subject, composition, color, contrast)

- Next level of image making (depth of field, lighting, point of view, macro)

- Moving out of P mode (A, S, M)



Do I need to pre-register?

Yes, we have limited seating, so pre-registration is required. Class costs $40, and if you have purchased a camera or lens with us, you are welcome to select "Free Entry."


What do I bring to class?

  • We will provide a pen and printout of the PowerPoint slides for you to take notes on. You will be able to take the PowerPoint notes home.
  • If you'd like to write down any questions you have, you're welcome to bring those with you. We will do our best to get to as many as your questions as we can.
  • You're also welcome to bring your camera. While this class is more lecture-style, it can be helpful to follow along with your camera, and it can sometimes be helpful to have your camera when asking questions. We also will offer specials on equipment following class--it may be easier to find accessories specific to your camera if you have it along.


Parking

We are located in downtown Ann Arbor and do not have a parking lot. We recommend coming downtown a little earlier than you may think you need to in order to find a parking spot. Street parking is free after 6PM Monday-Saturday. There is a parking structure (510 E Washington St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104) immediately next to our store, which runs $1.60/hr (max of $4 after 3PM)--there are usually spots in the structure available after 5PM.
