Meeting Times

  • Tuesday 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Mayber you own a digital camera, but are not getting the kind of images you want.  Or, maybe you're getting some great pictures, but can't figure out why.  This, then, is the class for you.  The major emphasis will be on moving away from the automatic mode, which most beginners gravitate towards, to shooting modes where you have total control of your camera.  

All the basic photograph concepts will be presented and discussed in depth.  Included will be:

Handholding the camera

Setting the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO

Using the camera's light meter to make properly exposed pictures 

Focusing the lens to createsharp images 

Depth-of-field options 

Finding best lenses to purchase 

Backing-up images- Cataloging images-digital editing basics


Additional Notes

Be sure to bring your digital camera (charged up with instruction booklet ) to class, along with photos you have taken, saved as JPGs, on a flash drive. IMPORTANT: Please be sure your camera can operate in non-Automatic modes, such as Manual or Shutter Priority – if it does not and you still want to take the class, that certainly is fine too.
