Accomplished shutterbug Ellen Yeiser teaches students of Introduction to Digital Photography how to produce breathtaking digital photos in an engaging three-hour class. Future paparazzi comfortable with the basics of their own digital camera—using its buttons and changing its settings—can bring it to the classroom along with the camera's manual, a fully charged battery, and the battery's best friend. During the class, which is limited in size to 10 students, Yeiser imparts a useful mish-mash of technical wisdom, including how to set ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, which ensures images are correctly processed to yield eye-stunning photos. In addition, framing and focusing lessons encourage pupils to exercise creative muscles so they can cart their newfound knowledge right out of the classroom and into a world cluttered with photo ops. After snapshot seminars, each attendee walks away with three 8"x10" or 8"x12" prints of one of their photos.
