dSLR Beginners... 4-hour Class on Sunday 1/9

If you own a digital SLR camera and would like to get to know it better, I'm holding class Sunday, January 9 from 2:00-6:00 p.m. (at my Montrose/Richmond area office).

This is a very basic get-to-know-your-camera class, you'll learn what makes that camera tick and how to take better basic photos!  I'll talk a little about the following topics:

  • How the camera "sees" light
  • Finding the light when you shoot
  • Basic composition of a photograph
  • What aperture is and how it affects the look of your images
  • The importance of choosing the right shutter speed
  • What White Balance is and why it's your BFF when set correctly
  • What the "best" lenses are for what you'd like to shoot
  • When to use your flash, and how to get great images without it

The cost of the class is $75, and it's limited to six attendees.   If you're interested and available, please fill out the contact form on my website and I'll get back with you as soon as possible : )

If you do attend, you'll need to bring:

  • Your camera and lenses... and any other gear you'd like to talk about
  • Your owner's manual
  • 5-10 of your favorite/best shots, printed
  • 5-10 shots that you dislike, and would like to learn how to make better
I look forward to hearing from you, and helping you understand your fantastic camera a little more!

Please remember, this is a basic class.  If you have a good understanding of most of the topics in the outline, you might be bored.  I always offer one-on-one help, so don't hesitate to contact me if you're interested in something more along those lines.
