Okello Dunkley designs his workshops for students who have just bought or are thinking of buying a DLSR camera but are mystified by its myriad gadgets and gizmos. The accessible nature of these classes has helped Dunkley spread them into nearly a dozen locations across the Midwest and east coast, where students as young as 12 learn how to take a digital camera off automatic mode and manually manipulate ISO light sensors and aperture openings. More advanced classes delve into working with difficult light—such as cloudy weather or days when the sun is set on strobe light—and others explore how to navigate computer software for photo manipulation.

“Great workshop! I've had the lecture classes that go over the various camera settings before, but being able to immediately grab my camera and take a few shots and compare how the different settings (ISO, shutter speed, and aperture) affect the results was incredibly valuable. Now I just need someone to follow me around all day and provide feedback on the photos I take out in the "real world." :-)”
