About this business
From Our Editors
PPA member and photographer Pat Guard employs her more than 40 years of experience to teach students essential camera-commanding techniques in her beginner digital-photography classes. During the three-hour course, approximately 15 shutterbugs learn to use their own DSLR cameras to blend image ingredients such as lighting, composition, exposure, and paprika into snazzy snapshots. Uncover the correlation between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO to capture individual droplets during a rainstorm, and finally comprehend the inherent meanings behind the numbers on your digital sidekick, putting control into your hands instead of your camera's finicky non-hands. Throughout, Pat also imparts wisdom regarding cleaning and maintenance processes, camera modes, and appropriate lens selection.
