Photography 1 & 2 - Venice

6 sessions


3 to 5

May 3 - June 7

Are you ready to get past the basics of using the camera and want to take control? In this class we'll explore ISO, aperture, shutter speed, and depth-of-field. Other areas such as white balance, composition and lenses (focal length) will be covered. Other topics will include shooting raw, tricky exposure situations, organizing your photos, and other topics. There will be a demonstration on how Photoshop Elements and Lightroom can enhance your photography.

This class will alternate between the classroom (demonstrations and looking at everyone's photographs) and hands-on shooting in the field.

Included in the class: Jim's Photo Cheat Sheet will be our main text as well as a 122-page Beecher's Handouts.

Prerequisite: Any digital camera is okay. You'll get more out of the class if the shutter can be changed on your camera (look for shutter-priority in the manual, or either S or Tv on a dial or screen on your camera). Bring your camera's manual if you have one. Make sure the battery is charged and that there's space on the memory card.

This class meets in Venice.
