Beginner’s Photography Class

Become a better photographer in just 1 class! Have you ever wondered why, after spending hundreds of dollars on the latest cameras, you still can't get photos that really make you proud? We're not talking about the party snapshots you post on Facebook, but stunning, well-exposed landscapes that can be considered fine art.

This 2.5-hour class is a crash course in digital photography, taught in small groups of around 20 students. You'll learn what all those knobs and dials on your DSLR do, the optimal settings to use in any lighting condition, and what kind of camera to buy if you don't already have one. You'll understand concepts like exposure, aperture, depth of field, ISO and shutter speed. You’ll probably never want to use the "automatic mode" again.

No prior experience or camera equipment is necessary to attend. You just need a desire to improve your photography skills. Take this class for yourself or gift it to a friend who's got a photography itch to scratch.
