In the Folk School tradition of hands-on learning, this class is ideal for the photographer to develop the basic skills necessary for a lifelong journey to capturing beautiful images. With each student using their own camera a complete lighting studio is set-up on site to add shooting experience to classroom learnings.
Goals of this class are to build an understanding of basic photography concepts, learn to shoot their camera off automatic mode and begin the process of capturing beauty as they see it. The ideal student for this class is someone that wants to take more control of their digital camera and get that jumpstart through the initial learning curve to make shooting good photography fun. Due to time and equipment limitations photo post editing will not be covered in class. Focus will be on aperture mode shooting. Class size will be limited to six adult students.
Requirement: Student must bring a working digital camera (lens systems if they have it) with a backup fully charged battery & charger to class.
Students are asked to bring the following materials:
- Snacks, water, or lunch, as there are no food facilities at the school
