With our Jumpstart digital photography classes, you can break the Full Auto habit once and for all. Let us show you the “Way to Shoot” with a digital camera by introducing you to new camera habits.
In this digital camera tutorial with your camera in hand, we connect the four key qualities found in excellent photographs to your DSLR camera's operations (buttons, dials, switches and thingies). We show you the most important features that make your camera the unique creative tool that it is. We emphasize using your camera in manual camera mode.
This brisk, information-intensive class favors fast learners. We show you how to practice key techniques for Metering Light, Good Exposure, and Sharp Focus. You will be introduced to the professional review cycle, using the darkroom inside your camera.
We help you organize your camera manual and camera with our course booklet so that you can practice and learn after you get home, from this day forward.
In our Jumpstart class, we show you how to do the following on Your camera:
- The “Way to Shoot” digital photographs
- Understand camera operation and interface
- The best camera menu settings
- How to control exposure in Manual mode
- The fundamentals of accurate focus control
For improved learning, we limit our class size to 6 people.
Please note this workshop teaches the DSLR camera. You need one of these cameras to participate in a class. Please read “Is your camera a DSLR?” to determine if your camera is a Single Lens Reflex camera.
