Event description

Description

This class is for the non-photographer who has a DSLR camera and wants to learn how to use more than its full auto made, taking advantage of its many great basic functions to capture better everyday photos and precious moments -- family, kids' sports, special occasions, vacations, and more.

This 4 hour class will get you away from that full auto mode on your camera by teaching you the basics of using the modes on your camera through discussion, demonstration, and hands-on learning. You will walk away from this one class with some great tips for capturing better photos as well as the confidence to use modes other than full auto!

Topics covered will include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following:
> care, transport, and handling of your camera
> best practices for your memory card and photo files
> basic accessories
> basics of exposure 0900 - aperture, shutter speed, and ISO
> white balance and shooting modes
> focusing
> auto mode - why and why not
> "semi-automatic" modes
> modes closer to manual
> brief discussion about manual mode
> scene selection & placement of your subject
> general composition dos and don'ts
> modifying/adding light
> taking actual photos using various modes and techniques discussed and demonstrated


Experience Level: Beginner

Knowledge Required: You need to be familiar with the basic knobs and wheels on your camera as well as how to access your camera's menu options. Review of the quick start guide or similar for your camera model should be adequate.

Gear/Materials Needed: DSLR camera (will have a removable lens and will likely have a mode dial similar to the event cover photo image), one lens, the user guide for your camera, and, if you have one, a tripod.

Important Location/Weather Notes: We will be working outdoors so a rain date may be established. It is also possible that this event will be changed to indoors or an alternate location. The organizer will send out a confirmation/reminder e-mail 1 - 2 days prior to the event, so watch for that! It will include a location map and where we will meet up at the location. Please feel free to check in with the organizer if you have not received such e-mail.

Additional Important Info: (1) While I understand the essential functions that are universal from camera to camera, I am not an expert on how to access all settings on all cameras. (2.) We will be on our feet a lot during this class. Also, it may be hot or otherwise less than perfect weather.
