    Instructor:
    Michael Downey

    When you look at an image you see the finished product, not what the photographer saw to make that image. And it's in this prior knowledge the photographer can take a snap shot and make a true photograph. Developing this type of vision takes both practice and patience.

    This latest class in the DSLR series will take you through a series of exercises which will help you maximize your natural artistic eye and increase the overall quality of your photographs. You will learn how to visually identify the balance of your photograph using traditional techniques, such as the rule of thirds.

    Understanding Your Camera I: The Basics

    Rated 5.0 out of 5 stars.

    Instructor:
    Michael Downey
    Skill Level:
    Beginner

    You have a digital camera and you know that the images are going to be far superior to the ones captured by your point-and-shoot camera, but maybe you're not sure how that happens.  This class is for beginners to amateur photographers looking to gain a better understanding of the automated modes and features, as well as the manual control and capabilities, of your digital SLR or mirrorless camera.

    Get instruction on the importance of understanding the fundamentals (such as depth of field, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, metering, white balance, reading histograms, on camera flashes, lenses) and how they will affect your photos!

    In the second half of the class, the students will work with their cameras and apply what they have learned.  The buttons and settings will be much easier to manipulate and each student will have develop the ability to capture the images closer to their vision.

    Please note that this class is NOT for point-and-shoot cameras.
