T.J. Gillespie teaches up to 10 pupils per class how to identify and control their camera’s aperture, shutter speed, and ISO in a two-hour session at Holiday Park. Classes commence at 9 a.m. on the second and last Saturday of each month.<p>

The party host kept snapping shots, instantly uploading each picture onto his television. It was the early 1990s, and to T.J. Gillespie⎯who had dabbled in photography until breaking a lens and camera⎯digital photography seemed like a magic trick. T.J. now teaches that magic trick, using a full-frame Nikon D600, to students during three-hour group or freeform one-on-one sessions. He emphasizes hands-on practice over long lectures, harnessing his teaching experience from years as a full-time computer-software instructor to patiently guide pupils through locating and adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. By spending time outdoors, T.J.'s apprentices discover how to work around various light conditions and how to capture subjects in focus while the background is out of focus.

Customer Reviews

This was an excellent course for beginners on how to use your DSLR camera. TJ is a great instructor, he is very detailed and helps each student hands-on. I definitely recommend it to anyone. Even if it's not on Groupon and you buy it directly from his website

It is obvious that TJ is very passionate about photography and truly wants to teach that passion to others. This was a fast-paced introduction to the manual settings on my DSLR that has taught me enough to get to practicing on my own. I highly recommend!
