In this “hands-on-the-camera” class, students will learn how to maximize their camera’s potential to create photographs with good composition that are suitable for framing.
Oct. 3 – 24
6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
This class provides a basic understanding of aperture, shutter speed, and ISO, and their roles in creating a balanced exposure. The class also will cover depth of field and its use in the composition of a photograph. Students also will gain knowledge to use their photographic equipment to its fullest and not rely on the “automatic” settings of the camera. An assignment will be given each week for students to practice the material covered, and their work will be reviewed at the next class.
Because of the large number of camera brands, and the numerous models of cameras within each of those brands, it is essential that students come to class with a basic knowledge of their camera’s menu operations and an ability to navigate simple operations, such as adjusting the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO level.
