Your camera is just a tool; photography is what you create with it! This comprehensive and inspiring class will help you connect your talents with your camera through a technical foundation in photography using Single Lens Reflex cameras (not fixed lens cameras). Learn necessary and important camera features, functions, controls, and operations, as well as accessories. Terms like metering, exposure control, f-stops, shutter speeds, and more will become a second language. Understand the basics of using flash and natural light to create the perfect photo. Relevant questions on digital features and characteristics will be covered in an open discussion. Bring your talent, imagination, questions, and digital or film SLR camera. No point-and-shoot cameras or phone-cams, please. Course taught by Steve Alexander. COVID-19 Safety Precautions: Classroom will be arranged to provide as much social distancing as possible.
