Learn how to take eye-robbing photos using any kind of digital camera with instruction from Pikto’s professional photographers. The Digital Photography for Beginners class gives point-and-shoot camera wielders the chance to snap to their potential. Budding Ansel Adamses will learn the basics of photographic composition, how to masterfully operate the camera, and how to survive in the wilderness with only a camera and a potato. File types, aperture, shutter speed, and innovative ways to use your camera’s flash will all be covered, imbuing students with the know-how for producing top-quality photos of any subject.

Should a limited skill set make your digital single-lens reflex camera feel heavier in your hand than a bag of worries, escort it to the Introduction to Digital Photography for DSLR Users class, where all the possibilities of your camera’s knobs and menus will be explored. In five hours, you’ll learn about lenses, flash use, the uses of file formats such as .RAW and .JPG, how to artfully manage depth-of-field in your images, and more. Before long you’ll be composing professional-looking shots without having to draw them yourself.
