I have a nice point and shoot camera, I can navigate around the various settings but have no knowledge of the manual mode, do not understand all those photographic terms like aperture, raw, aspect ratio!! I have in the past gone to a basic class and pretty much know the basics, would you recommend the Mastering Manual class to someone with my knowledge? Looking to further my photographic skills:)

Our Basic Camera Operations Workshop is intended to prepare participants to work in aperture and priority modes with exposure compensation. If these concepts are new to you then this is where I would start. However if you currently shoot in the priority modes and use exposure compensation then I'd start off with the Manual Photography Workshop. The Manual Photography Workshop does a quick review of the basics then covers understanding the light meter and manual photography mode. We also go over using the histogram and highlight warning to adjust exposure. Some of the nicer point and shoot cameras have these features, some don't. In any case you'll learn to work with what you have. I recommend you bring the manual specific to your camera, just in case there are questions about controls that are hard to find on some models.
