Introduction to Digital Photography: The Basics
This class will focus on the basic concepts of photography and using your camera. To get the most from the class, participants should have a digital camera that users can set the f-stop and shutter speed for (DSLR's and most advanced compact cameras will have a manual, aperture priority or shutter priority mode that will work for this). If you aren't sure if your camera will work for the class, don't hesitate to ask.
Topics that will be covered in the class are how f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO work together to determine a photographs exposure, how these settings can influence the look of your photo, how to take control of your camera and set the f-stop and shutter speed, how to use ISO, what white balance is, and how in-camera processing settings can impact the color of your photographs. The class will also cover controlling your exposure, using your histogram, bracketing exposures and working with light. The last part of the class will introduce some basic concepts about composition and creating the photograph you want.
The class will include 4 classroom meetings (Thurs) and 3 optional field trips (Saturdays) to practice what we cover in the class meetings. Exact times of the fields will be discussed at the first class, but will be on Saturday evening a few hours before sunset. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to the field trips
Thursday: 7-9pm, March 3, 10, 24, and 31 (no class March 17)
Saturday: a few hours before sunset March 5, 12, and 19
