The first class of the course initiates novices in the basic differences between shooting digital images and snapping point-and-click pictures. Students will learn how to manipulate aperture and shutter speed for clear exposures and understand when and why to swap lenses. Exposure and metering take center stage during the second class as initiates permanently strap core techniques to their photographic tool belts.
The third class trains the eye in the art of image composition by imparting lessons in the rule of thirds and perspective. Finally, the newly added Art of Seeing session zooms out to take in strategies for improving overall photo quality.
Students should provide their own DSLR camera, or they may rent one from the rentals department at a 50% daily discount.
