This is for beginners who have a Digital Single Lens Reflex camera (or similar) and want to learn how to shoot with more confidence and creative control. This is a hands-on workshop with a small group and time for your questions. The instructor will cover all the topics below. We keep the class size small so there’s time for interaction and problem solving. 2 class dates- January 7, February 11 10am to 2pm, bring a snack or lunch


Buttons and dials: locating and deciphering the physical controls on your camera. Basic menus & settings: file size, quality, JPG, RAW, TIFF, white balance and ISO.

Exposure: a thorough explanation of shutter speeds, f-stops and their relationship to ISO and light. Motion blur and depth of field: understanding these creative tools is the key to better photos! Exposure modes: getting off the green Auto mode and understanding the difference between P-A-S-M, (P-Av-Tv-M). Built-in flash: when to just say no.
