Description

Please note: This is a 2-part class that will meet on the dates listed above
After learning “the basics” of digital photography, become more comfortable in the world of digital photography by taking the next step.
Learning about photography can be a real challenge! For this reason, we often start newcomers off using the “Priority Modes” (Ex. Aperture Priority) because it’s “easier”. In reality, these priority modes are just one solution. For some photographers, there is only the manual mode. But why is it important to shoot in the Manual mode? Are there reasons to use manual vs. Aperture priority and vice-versa? How can we maximize usability?

While our Beginner class scratches the surface of these functions, this Beyond the Basics class will cover in-depth:

•Your Camera’s Light Meter and how it works
•Use of Aperture Priority vs. Manual modes
•Histograms
•Photographing in RAW vs. Jpeg

We will also give an assignment to do outside of class in order to help strengthen your photographic abilities!

Understanding the full-functionality of your camera is a necessity to improving your flexibility when photographing in a variety of situations. This course is designed to help you feel more comfortable about how to change your camera’s settings in those situations. It is recommended as a follow-up to our Beginner Photography course.
