In this class, we will cover the basics of digital photography in an introductory but thorough manner. It is appropriate for those that have no previous experience with a digital camera, as well as those that know the basics, but want to take their photography to the next level. Students will learn about camera settings and controls, current technology, composition, and the artistic side of digital photography. Short
take home assignments will help you become comfortable with your new skills, and we’ll spend time reviewing your photographs as a group. An optional text will also be used as a permanent reminder of the material covered.
Additional material costs approximately $20 - $25 to be paid to the instructor.

Of all types of photography, low light and night photography provide the best opportunities for creating otherworldly and painterly images, as well as beautiful night landscapes complete with lovely starbursts. This hands-on class will cover a range of techniques that rely on slow shutter speeds, including panning, zooming, and two different types of light painting. The class concludes with a demo of post-processing techniques or enhancing low light and night images.
