Introduction to Digital Photography
What You'll Learn
If you want to take great photographs, the first step is understanding the different types of cameras and how to use their manual settings. Both amateurs and aspiring professionals will learn how to use a digital camera properly.
We'll start by learning about the variety of cameras on the market, from point-and-shoot to digital SLR. Then we'll look at the essential manual controls every photographer should know, followed by tips on organizing and archiving your photos - because after this workshop, you'll take a lot of pictures!
This workshop will cover:
- Types of digital cameras, components, features and functions
- How to determine which camera is right for you
- Using automatic and manual exposure controls
- Setting image formats, size and quality
- Automatic and manual focus controls, custom functions and selecting AF points
- Transferring and organizing images on the computer
- Backup and archiving image files
If you have a digital camera, bring it and your user's manual! Because individual cameras vary widely, we won't have time to go through settings for each one. Your user's manual is a handy shortcut to your camera's specific controls.
Who Should Take This
Aspiring professional and semi-professional photographers, and enthusiastic amateurs who want to take better photos. This workshop is also perfect for anyone who wants guidance in buying a new camera!
