Working from home you will learn the basic skills needed to get the most out of digital cameras in a friendly and nurturing online environment via Zoom interface. A perfect course for beginning students, as well as seasoned amateurs who would like to brush up on the basics. 35mm based single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, as well as compact point and shoot cameras that can be manually operated are welcome. Beginning students will learn basic photographic principles such as the camera and its controls, how to use aperture and shutter speed together to gain a proper exposure, depth of field, white balance, tricky lighting situations, and how to get the right image. Later in the session students will be introduced to basic digital workflow and image cataloging from camera to computer, with an introduction to digital photography software. Students will provide their own camera and computer.
