Choose Between Two Options
- $299 for a 16-hour Introduction to Digital Photography class (a $600 value)
- $94 for a 5-hour Basic Digital Cameras class (a $188 value)
Throughout the 16-hour, four-session course, students will learn how to adjust the buttons, dials, and menus on their cameras and begin using the elusive manual controls. Once they understand how to use their tools, they will discuss artistic aspects such as composition, lighting, and poses before honing their skills in the field.
During the five-hour course, students with point-and-shoot and DSLR cameras will apply what they learned in the classroom outside after practicing with hands-on exercises and demonstrations.
Students should bring their cameras, manuals, batteries, and memory cards to all classes. Click here to view the class schedule.
Julie Diebolt Price, president of JDP Photography, puts friendly faces on websites and brochures by crafting portraits for corporations, entrepreneurs, and organizations. In addition to helping clients such as Standard Pacific Homes, Women Helping Women, and Orange County Rescue Mission, Julie chronicles programs and events for the National Association of Women Business Owners, and she rubs elbows with august institutions such as the Professional Photographers of California and the Professional Photographers of America. Despite a successful professional career—her portfolio is filled with group portraits, product images for advertisements, and stock photos—she has not neglected her artistic side: a piece she dubbed “Tableau at Badling” landed a spot in the PPA’s 2010 International Photographic Competition general collection. When she isn't snapping photos, she teaches others how to use cameras such as DSLR, point-and-shoot, and camerae obscurae.
