Choose from Two Options

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, and snacks and drinks brought from home refresh creative juices.

Isla Studio

Isla Studio's professional photographers expresses the world and its people through richly colored fine-art images. Whether dealing with landscapes, buildings, portraits, or UFOs, the team waits for a moment to reveal itself, combining the timing of photojournalism with a carefully considered emotional resonance. They also expand the shutter-snapping community with small classes that explore the ins and outs of digital photography.

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!
