A66221 Beginning Digital Photography (Core Class)
If you're a beginning photographer and a bit mystified by your digital camera, this class is for you. You'll start by learning camera basics like aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings. You'll move on to learning how to make pictures and to develop your compositional skills. We'll also discuss lenses and other equipment and how to care for your gear. By the end of the course, you'll be more excited than ever about photography and you'll own a collection of images that demonstrate your technical and creative growth. Please bring your camera (fully charged) and its manual. The class workbook, "Understanding Photography Field Guide" by Brian Peterson, is optional but strongly recommended.
