This guided 4-week course is a hands-on experience that will give you in-depth understanding of how your digital camera works and how to best use it to create beautiful imagery. The course will be based both in the classroom and out shooting in the world so participants should bring a digital SLR camera with manual mode, and be prepared for a moderate amount of walking outside (tripods are not required, but are suggested if you own one).
This is a great course for both beginners and those with some camera knowledge as we will cover a wide range of topics that are often overlooked, but necessary to understanding your camera fully, some of these include: manual camera functions (Shutter speed, aperture, ISO), proper exposure, how to read a histogram, white balance, focus modes, lens types and focal length, understanding JPEG VS raw files, and tips and tricks on crafting high quality imagery.
Please note that this course deals predominantly with capturing images in camera, and not post-processing using additional applications.
