  • Wednesday / January 8 /  6:30 - 9:30 p.m.

This introductory class is ideal for those who are new to digital photography or simply want to create consistently better-looking images. This class will walk you through the different modes, dials and settings available in your digital cameras for various shooting conditions and subjects. Topics covered include the basic rules of composition, general tips for taking better pictures, and the use of auto-scene modes. Open to all digital camera owners. Some shooting in the Garden is included. Limit 10.

Next Steps

  • Instructor: Robert McBride
  • Saturday / January 25 / 1 - 5 p.m.
  • Thursday / January 30 /  6:30 - 9:30 p.m.

In this class, the focus is 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 dial modes. Topics discussed include creative use of exposure controls, auto-focus options, metering and exposure among others. Hands-on assistance will be provided while setting up your camera for varying lighting and scene conditions using appropriate metering and focus options. Some shooting in the Garden 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. Limit 10.
