PHOTO1 The Basics – Description
This is a one-day 2 1/2-hour class teaching you to no longer use Automatic. Instead, you will learn how to use the “Aperture Priority” and “Shutter Priority” modes. These modes give you a wide range of control over your pictures without the difficulties of shooting on Manual. This is why we don’t teach Manual photography at the beginner stage.. “Priority” modes are extremely versatile, less work-intensive and less confusing to start with. Manual photography can involve mathematical calculations, which we feel is too big of a leap forward when starting your photographic education. In fact, there are many cases where using Priority Modes is the preferred method of shooting.

The goal of the PHOTO1 The Basics photography class is to begin understanding your camera, and its settings for crafting your pictures. From this class, you will begin using your camera for what it’s really worth. You will also learn about lenses and what to look for when purchasing camera equipment. 

Topics Covered:

  • Semi-Automatic Modes – Aperture Priority &, Shutter Priority
  • ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed
  • Optimal settings for difficult lighting, portraits, sports & action, creative photography, fireworks, nighttime photography, etc.
  • How to navigate your camera’s settings
  • Lenses and focal length

Includes: 

  • Detailed downloadable notes and photography assignments
  • Direct correspondence with your instructor for questions and feedback.

PHOTO2 Techniques – Description
This is a one-day 2 1/2-hour class that teaches you the most useful settings in your camera menu. We like to call theses settings “Secondary Functions”. Secondary Functions allow you to tweak your camera’s performance for focusing, fast action & motion, creative portraits and coloration. Knowing these settings helps you optimize your camera to ease frustrations and difficulties…that way you can capture the perfect moment at the right time.

You will also learn about functions that help you fine tune your images. Photographers typically spend more time in front of a computer than behind the camera. Getting it right in the camera is helpful in shortening the length of time you spend editing pictures at your computer.

The goal of this class is for you to master your camera’s controls so you and your camera can work together in harmony.

Topics Covered:

  • Faster focusing techniques for action/movement
  • Creative focusing for
