Event Details

This workshop is focused on introducing the beginner photographer or new camera owner to the basic concepts of composition and exposure.  You will be shown how to work with the major camera features required to take your first steps forward in photography.  With these skills you can begin to take better photos of any subject and get more enjoyment from your photography.  

Lesson takes place inside and outside (weather permitting) and contains a lot of information (don't worry, I will give you all your notes already written so you can just focus on the class). 

Who Should Take This Class?:

  • Beginner - who need an introduction to their new cameras and to photography basics.
  • Novice - who wish to get an all inclusive review of the basics.  It's a great refresher course for those who learned (but forgot) this information previously.


Beginner Photography Subjects Include:

Exposure | Depth of Field & Shooting Modes

Understanding Exposure:

  • Most training out there tells you "what to do" NOT "why to do it and how it works". 
  • Understanding the why and how allows you to tackle new situations not just those situtions used within a single example.
  • Achieving proper exposure. (working with shutter speed, aperture and ISO).
  • Working with exposure compensation.

Shooting Modes:

  • M, A, S (Tv), P
  • What are they for? When to use them.

Depth of Field:

  • Improving your composition with depth of field.
  • DOF and aperture (f/stops) focal length, sensor size, subject distance.


Metering | Focusing | Dynamic Range

Metering Modes:

  • Controlling exposure via metering modes.
  • Targeting exposure to your subject.


  • Focusing techniques
  • Focus area modes
  • Focus points
  • Using manual focus

Dynamic Range:

  • Learn how to tackle those terrible lighting situations that leave you with blown out skies and shadows with no details. 

Basic Composition

  • Framing your subjects
  • Rule of thirds
  • Background and foregrounds
  • Unique viewpoints
  • and more...

My name is Gene Tewksbury.  I am a professional photographer working out of Golden, Colorado. []

I love teaching photo enthusiasts how to make the most of their cameras and imaging software.

Workshops and Private Lessons through Big Sun Photography are taught differently than most "cookie cutter" workshops.

- Questions and comments are encouraged through the entire class. 
- Class may be modified on the fly if the class seems to want to go in a certain direction.
- I try to effectively convey the "how and why" of photogrpahy, not just "click by numbers" approach.  In other words, I want you to know why a technique works so that you can apply that technique beyond the examples from class.  "Teach a man to fish.... right?"

I look forward to helping you reach your artistic goals.
