Beginning Digital Photography Workshop
January 26 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm EST$140.00
Learning how to work your new digital camera properly can make all the difference in the world for you to have fun while making great images of your family and vacations, or stepping up your photography for exhibition or video projects. This beginning workshop for adults and mature teens will cover basic digital camera controls and how they relate to lighting, getting the correct exposure, getting good color and composition.
Bring your favorite digital camera, instruction booklet and any accessories you might have. The goal of this stress-free workshop is to develop a basic understanding of your camera controls while exploring the key elements of photography. There will be a balance of technical and creative information with a great handout to follow after the workshop.
“One of the words I often hear from people is ‘afraid’. “I was afraid to fiddle with it because I was afraid I would not be able to get it back to the settings that would work for me.” My major goal for this workshop is to help take the fear out of this technology for you. By the time you leave, your fingers and brain will feel very comfortable setting up things in the menu, and most importantly, you will understand why you are doing that. These actions are not random. I will show you what is important to know for the type of photographs you like to make and how to quickly think through the process. There will be some hands-on opportunities so we can see some results with what you have learned.”
We will also talk a lot about composition because even using all the automatic settings, you pictures can be much better with more thought given to better composition. Bring a sample of some of your photos and/or videos to share if you can. If you have printed photos, they would be easier to share. Bring your camera with charged batteries, a camera card, the camera instruction booklet and your lunch. I will have coffee, tea and bottled water here for you.
Call with any questions. Plan to get here by 10:45 so we can start on time.
