Digital Photography 101

Whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced photographer, capture the beauty of spring as you expand your knowledge of your digital camera functions beyond auto point & shoot settings through instruction in the foundations of manual operations covering aperture, shutter, film speed, and more. Explore portraiture, still-life, and nature up-close and at a distance using natural, flash, and studio lighting.

Materials fee will be applied to printing medium scale photos for critique and display.

Students are required to supply their own camera; your camera must have a full manual mode, with aperture, shutter, and ISO controls.
