Groups of 20–25 students swear off the automatic setting of digital SLRs as they learn to operate knobs and dials. Inside the studio, brains steep in knowledge of exposure, aperture, ISO, and shutter speed, empowering them to judge the best settings for capturing grand vistas or detailed headshots of a ladybug. Students are welcome to bring their own cameras or borrow them from the studio, and snacks and drinks brought from home refresh creative juices. See upcoming class dates here.
