Photography 101

Understanding your Camera’s Function and Features


This class is for anyone who wants to better their understanding of their camera in order to improve the pictures created with it. The only requirement is to have a digital camera (compact camera, mirror-less camera, or DSLR).

This class covers the basics of exposure, the features of your camera and how to use them. We will discuss the sensor, memory cards, focus modes, metering modes, white balance, lens selection (including the range of your zoom lens), and the exposure modes (Auto, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Close-Up, Night, Movie, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, etc.) The goal is to provide an understanding of your camera and to improve the photographs that you take.

Hand-outs will be provided. This class is approximately 2-hours in length in one session and conducted in an informal, but structured manner. Questions are encouraged during and after the class.
