Photography Intermediate 03/31/2020 - 05/05/2020 $114.00

So, you have your camera, you know a little about the aperture and shutter speed and even the ISO, but you’re shooting everything in the green box and wondering why they don’t all come out great. You will learn HOW those auto modes work, WHY they sometimes don’t, and WHAT TO DO to make them work for you. You’ll also learn about lenses and which one to choose for each purpose. You’ll learn a little about integrating flash into your pictures. Emphasis will be placed on using the techniques to help you do a better job creatively. We will discuss composition, lighting, use of color and contrast, etc. Having a DSLR is great for this class, but not necessary. If you just want to learn more about how to make your point-and-shoot work better for you, then this class is also for you. Some digital applications will be discussed but will not be the focus of this class. This class will focus on making your creative mind and camera work better for you.
