Learn the keys to photographic excellence. An emphasis will be placed on intermediate photo skills and advanced set-up of your digital SLR camera. You will learn to take your camera off the auto scene modes and take charge of capturing images using the creative settings of the mode dial. Topics will include creative use of exposure controls, auto focus options, metering and exposure, use of histograms and highlights, understanding the relationship between ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings, and image resolution and white balance. Hands-on assistance will be provided for you to set up your camera for varying lighting conditions and scenes using appropriate metering and focus options. Some shooting in the Gardens is included, and students should bring photos for class critique. While all digital camera owners are welcome, this class is most appropriate for DSLR camera owners.
