This is geared towards adults and older teens. It will be a fun but comprehensive beginner’s class that will provide you with more skill and confidence in your photography skills!
This class includes the basics of what photography is and how to control light on your digital camera. We will briefly discuss how aperture, shutter speed, and ISO impact an image. Students will all learn how to change these settings on their cameras. The class will then proceed outdoors (weather permitting) to investigate how changing your perspective and moving your body as a photographer impacts the lighting in your images. Through a series of challenges and suggestions the students will learn to keep tabs on their key light source, the sun, and how moving themselves or their subject affects an image.
Students should bring their own camera. We will have a limited amount of extras cameras to borrow however please email us to inquire. First come first email@example.com
