Good tips for the Groupon rate. I feel more confident using the features on my DSLR.

I recently bought their groupon for an intro level class on DSLR. I found the class to be very very helpful as a novice photographer who just bought his first DSLR as a hobby. I would recommend it to others who may want to understand their camera better and learn to take pictures in other modes besides Auto. Before buying this groupon I did a lot of research and by this I mean watch a lot of youtube videos on how to use a DSLRs and take good pictures, but they only seem to cover the very basic functionality of the camera and not photography. This class helped me understand some of the basic concepts of photography. They do a little slide show in the beginning on photography, lighting, exposure, field of depth, and shutter speed. Afterwards they break-up into groups for more hands on tips and how to use your particular camera. We even went outside to take a few shots and see how they come out based on different settings and manual modes.

Park in the back of the building. The front doesn't give any indication that The Light Factory is in the rear of the building.

I found the instructor to be difficult to follow. The handout was not helpful. This was designed for someone who has a knowledge base of photography as opposed to a beginner. I would be hesitant to register for another class for fear that this is the typical lecture format. It wasn't for me, but I do believe that others did find it helpful.

From Our Editors

Photographers, filmmakers, and fans of both art forms unite at the Light Factory, a buzzing cultural center on Charlotte's Central Avenue. Here, visionaries of all stripes have the chance to express their creativity amid the acclaimed—and oftentimes, infamous—images that line the gallery walls. 

In addition to attending events and gathering for exhibitions, folks interested in improving their own skills can enroll in the Light Factory's array of classes. During these sessions, students learn about black-and-white photography, portraiture, and how to handle DSLR cameras, which are especially difficult to house train.
