Beginner Photography Class

Class TitleBeginner Photography Class
DescriptionAutomatic mode just doesn’t cut it when shooting conditions are anything less than perfect. In this course we will cover a range of topics which will all help you in your quest for better photos. In four weeks you will be able to:

-Understand basic camera terminology
-Get acquainted with and have a chance to talk and ask questions about lenses, tripods, bags and accessories
-Quickly choose the right preset/mode for the situation and understand the mechanics behind it
-See the relationship between aperture, shutter and ISO
-Make your camera rapid fire at sporting events or do long exposures of trailing car lights
-Increase and decrease the brightness of your images reliably
-Apply simple compositional rules that will improve EVERY shot.

The first half of the lesson is usually spent in the classroom. We review our work from the previous session and then I present the new lesson. I include a lot of photos that utilize the techniques we are learning so that you can see instantly what is possible. The photos can also be a good source of inspiration for the shooting we will do later. From there we work our way through the camera controls. Whether you are shooting a Canon, Nikon, Sony, or a camera made out of shoebox we work together to determine if you have the given functionality and to access and use it.

The second half of class is where we start applying what we have learned. I set up mini photo missions for you that require use of the newly acquired skill and possibly those learned in previous classes. I like to give students room and time to get into their creative zone and experiment but I’m always close enough that you can come to me with any questions. Finally homework is assigned and I encourage students to upload and share their homework on our faecbook page so we can review it next class!
