Event Overview

Ever wondered what an f-stop is? Ever wanted to have just a bit more creative control over your photos than you get from a point-and-shoot camera? Ever wanted to take your photographic creativity to the next level?

This class will teach the very basics of using your camera. In this hands-on, cooperative class you will learn:

• The four elements of correct exposure
• What is RAW format? Why should you shoot in RAW?
• What the heck is a histogram?
• And lots more.

This is a bootcamp with tons of information, so come ready to learn!

Required to bring:

• Your DSLR camera (digital single-lens reflex) with memory card and fully charged battery
• Your camera’s user manual if you have it
• At least one lens (recommended: a 50mm f/1.8 fixed focal length lens)
• A notebook and pen

Supplied: handouts

    This class was soooo informative and helpful! I really loved how Kat took the time to help us at whatever level we were at, and we even had time at the end to walk around and implement the new skills we learned in class!
