Unique Photo's industry professionals marshal their experience to lead aspiring shutterbugs to photographic proficiency, covering DSLR camera operations and advanced theories of composition. The basic 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, understand when and why to swap lenses, and how to keep unwanted fingers from the edge of pictures by disciplining them in front of their peers. Exposure and metering take center stage during intermediate-level courses as initiates permanently strap core techniques to their photographic tool belts. Finally, the advanced classes round out the suite, training the eye in the art of image composition by imparting lessons in the rule of thirds, perspective, and freezing time to capture unblurred images of Bigfoot.
