Non-Credit Classes at UFM

Online Introduction to Photography

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. Each week videos on various topics will be covered (approximately 2 hours per week) and on Saturdays students will have a chance to meet at locations around Manhattan to practice what was covered in the weekly videos. 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. Exact times of the fields will be determined weekly, but will be on Saturday evening a few hours before sunset. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation to the field trips.
