Are there way too many buttons on your digital camera?  Are you stuck in auto mode?  Get out of auto and learn how to take control of your images.  Learn all the amazing things your camera is capable of that you never knew were possible!

This class covers basic camera mechanics, the selection of a file type, shooting modes, and flash.  Students will learn about the fundamentals of exposure with the relationship among shutter speeds, apertures, and ISO settings explained.  White balance, metering modes, and focus will also be discussed and demonstrated.  Elements of composition will also be explained and practiced.

Classroom instruction will be reinforced with outdoor shooting in the local area. In addition, students will be given photo assignments to complete prior to meeting on the second Saturday.  Each participant will be given a binder of photographic handouts to keep for future reference.  You can expect to leave this class with a deeper understanding of the capabilities of a digital camera and ability to fully utilize your camera to capture outstanding images.
