Can everything on your camera work on manual setting except for you? What do all those buttons do?!?  Come learn the ins and outs of your camera and gain total control over your images.  From the basics of exposure and composition we’ll move into lighting techniques, color theory and how to gain optimal prints from your digital files. 

Classes will be a mix of technical lectures, group lab time and group critique. This course offers a wide range of basic and intermediate skills to help those interested in expanding their understanding of photography. Students will be able to fully operate their camera on any settings and will learn the process to obtain technically proficient final prints.

A digital SLR is recommended.  Maximum 8 students.
