In this “hands-on-the-camera” class, students will learn how to maximize their camera’s potential to create photographs that are suitable for framing.
Tuesdays April 4 & 11
Thursdays April 6 & 13
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
The instructor will guide students through the menus within the software of their cameras and through the function of the many buttons on their camera’s body and lenses. Proper handling and care of photography equipment also will be covered and the class includes instruction on how to take quality pictures of a variety of subjects – landscape, people, architecture, and more. Assignments will be given between classes to encourage students to practice what they learn.
Students must bring their own SLR camera with a fully charged battery, the camera’s manual if available, and a memory card with ample storage.
