The best way to sharpen your skills is to take a lot of pictures with your DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex) camera. With today’s digital technology not only do you get to see the shot immediately when you shoot it, but if you don’t like it, you can simply delete it. In this hands-on class, with Instructor Jeremy Wilburn, you will learn about the basic fundamentals of your digital camera and how to use settings, aperture, and ISO. Learn how to photograph in creative settings. Emphasis will be on getting out of “program” mode and then looking at ways to edit and manage the photos you want to print or share online. Students will be walking around and taking pictures, please bring your DSLR camera to the class.
