Working through the technical buttons and wheels on your camera can be overwhelming; this class will help take the mystery and frustration out of getting successful, exciting photos. Working through the functions of your camera as well as basic principles of photography will spark your creativity and excitement.
Through discussion and demonstrations we will help to demystify some of the challenges in digital photography.
Technical Topics we will cover during this workshop:
Getting a good Exposure
Focus –getting sharp photos
Working with available light vs flash
Filters, Diffusers, Reflectors as augmented tools
We will also present elements of compositional creativity; so that you are able to “shoot what you see” and bring home beautiful, crisp photos.
Once you have the practical, technical aspects under your belt, you will be able to expand your photography with inspiration and knowledge to create photos that do not disappoint.
