Samy’s Camera's team of shutterbugs imparts mastery of the rapidly changing currents of digital photography through any of the introductory classes. Computer classrooms resound with the banter of students and the hum of photo editing hard drives during the Introduction to Photoshop CS5 class, which focuses studies on Adobe Camera Raw images and the simple ways to manipulate them into prints of celebrities eating other celebrities. Intro to Digital Bookmaking offers insight into how a coffee table book can be a personalized wedding album, cookbook, and more. During the seminar, Samy's Creative Solutions software will be demoed and a coupon code for a free photo book is given out. The secrets of calibrating cameras and computers to show consistent color unveil themselves in the Intro to Color Calibration course, and Understanding Your Digital Camera covers basics such as setting resolution, basic flash operation, and more for a point-and-shoot or digital SLR camera. Intro to DSLR Video helps people realize the full potential of their cameras and provides instruction on how to stabilize and accessorize shooting rigs.
Students can choose classes from any location and are encouraged to bring their own computers to follow along with the classes. Sammy's regularly adds classes to their schedule; check the current list of intro classes here.
