Isla Studio’s trio of professional photographers—Lindsay, William, and Mel—acquaints small classes of novice shutterbugs with the camera savvy to snap alluring images. Students are weaned off the automatic setting as they grow their adult fingernails and learn to operate a DSLR’s knobs and dials. Within the indoor studio, brains steep in knowledge of concepts such as exposure, aperture, and shutter speed, which empower burgeoning photographers to judge the best settings for capturing grand vistas or detailed headshots of a ladybug. Students are welcome to bring their own camera or borrow one from the studio, and snacks and drinks brought from home refresh creative juices. See upcoming class dates here.

Customer Reviews

Michael was great. The time flew by. He was very entertaining, informative and helpful. I highly recommend this course with him.

Beginners photography class is very informative.

If you are a beginner (thinking about getting one or received one as a gift and not sure how to use it), this is a great intro class to break the photography lingo into lamen terms. For those who have a camera and want to step up their skills, come with a list of questions based on your challenges. If you get Michael as an instructor, he'll answer all your questions on spot. He's wonderful! Enjoy!
