Digital Photography Basics

with Jeff Woodlee



Class Details


So you've got this awesome new camera, with all kinds of features, and the instruction manual full of terms and words that you just don’t understand. We'll explain all the important stuff, and give you some guidance to help transform your average images into ones you’ll be proud to show off! 

The more familiar you are with your camera, and the fundamentals of photography, the more fun it will become… Photography should be fun. This class is designed to help you understand where and what the dials and buttons on your camera do.


Understanding how Aperture (F-Stops), Shutter Speeds, and ISO’s work together to expose the image correctly and how each affects the image you make. We’ll discuss how to read a histogram to verify the quality of your exposures. 


We will also discuss what the program functions on your camera do and when it is a good idea to use them. Sometimes simple is better.


The quality of your images is also directly related to your understanding of some basic guidelines for photographic composition. You need to learn to recognizing the difference between good pictures that are and not so good you will “see” pictures differently after this class. Not just yours, all pictures.
