Conquering your Camera
Are you confused or uneasy with the operation of your SLR camera (either film or digital)? Perhaps you could use a “refresher” on photography basics?
This course allows you to acquire knowledge and skills in operating an adjustable camera, allowing you to take better control of the camera and make better photographic decisions. You’ll learn about: shooting modes, exposure, depth of field & motion control; lighting awareness & flash usage; and ideas for effective photographic composition. Digital file types and sizing will also be explained.
Please note the final class includes an outdoor field trip! Students should bring their cameras (and the instruction manual for the camera) to all scheduled classes. A SLR (Single Lens Reflex camera with interchangeable lenses) is required for this course.
