Beginner Photography Class - What's This Button Do? - Mondays starting October 21, 2019
Do you have a SLR camera that you really are not sure what to do with when you turn the knob away from Auto mode? Do you want to learn what all those letters and numbers on your camera mean? What are all those buttons and knobs for?
I will be holding a 6 week class in my studio teaching all the basics of shooting in manual mode and making you a better hobbyist.
The first class will be held at 7pm on Monday, October 21st. The studio is located at 230 W. Main St in Monrovia, just minutes from I-70. This will be every Monday evening until November 25th. Each class will last about 1 hour.
The first class will cover the anatomy of the camera and lens. Each class after that will go over more specifics of the settings and what the buttons do. I will teach basic lighting techniques, and how to get clearer images, even with the lens that came with your camera!
Cost for the 6 week class is $99. This will also get you access to our Private Facebook group that is for attendees only! You will always have access to this group and be able to ask questions and share your photos for critique at any time. If you are not able to attend the class, don't worry, we will take video of each class and post it in the group! You must pay the registration fee in order to gain access to the group, though. Space will be limited for in studio class, so register now to make sure you don't miss out!
Weekly class topics: 1. Introduction: Anatomy of the camera and lens. 2. Moving out of Auto mode: ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Manual Focus. 3. Flash: On camera vs hot shoe vs off camera. 4. Basic composition and lighting. 5. Timers and tripods. 6. Storing and printing your images.
After each class, you are expected to take what you have learned and start using it. Share your images with the Facebook group. I will be available to answer questions on what you can do to improve those images.
