Today’s cameras offer the photographer a wealth of tools that can lead to beautiful photographs. Capturing the perfect portrait of a loved one, a fleeting moment leading to the winning goal, or a stunning travel photo takes practice and know-how.

Learn how YOU, not the camera, can control the final image by choosing the appropriate setting for the look you want. This class makes it easy to understand the many features packed into your camera. You'll gain the confidence to move beyond the Auto mode, and how to effectively use the settings to capture better pictures.

This class is designed for those who want to learn more about photography basics and exposure settings.

Topics Include:

  • Camera Controls - Learn the most important features and menu settings.
  • Manual Shooting Modes
  • ISO Settings
  • Shutter Speeds - Control motion to add emphasis.
  • Depth of Field - How the aperture affects what is in focus.
  • Focus Settings
  • White Balance
  • Lenses - The options.
  • Composition - What makes an interesting photograph.

Participants are encouraged to bring their camera.  As Corey discusses camera features or menu settings, you can follow along and learn how to set them.  An extra battery, memory card, and your instruction manual are also very helpful to have on hand at the class.
