During the three-hour Intro to Your Digital Camera class, novices learn the basic mechanics of digital SLR and point-and-shoot cameras. After a review of the cameras’ menu items, aspiring shutterbugs partake in a quick still-life demo, as well as a live model shoot. Digital Photo Academy’s instructors encourage students to enlist in the class whether or not they already own a digital camera. The classes take place Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays at Denver Pro Photo. View the schedule.
The Composition in the Field workshops equip students with the skills to evoke surprising imagery from everyday surroundings. During each outdoor outing, an experienced photographer guides lenses toward flawless lighting, thoughtful framing, and stealthy snapshots of bald eagles not wearing their hairpieces. Students choose from locations such as snap fests of the urban environment of Lodo or the open-air venues and the zoo at City Park Pavilion to the sloping, textured stones of the Red Rocks Amphitheater. Participants in this workshop should plan to schlep their own digital camera and any other equipment, such as a tripod, to the site of their picturesque locale.
Workshops are held on Saturdays and Sundays at various times and locations and are taught by a host of instructors.
Digital Photo Academy
As memory cards replaced film reels, many photographers—both professional and amateur—felt befuddled by the new technology. That's where Digital Photo Academy stepped in. Since 2007, the business has facilitated workshops that explore all aspects of digital imagery, from operating cameras and uploading digital files to editing images and airbrushing realistic mustaches. Seasoned professionals lead the courses, helping understudies hone their use of light, framing, and timing. Students furnish their own cameras, and can tote along any ancillary equipment such as tripods, laptops, and flashes that relate to the course at hand.
