In this online class we will explore beginner aspects of photography for Digital Single Lens Reflex cameras. We will discuss how to bring together the elements of manual mode to create an evocative image: shutter speed, aperture, and image composition. We will examine how the selection of shutter speeds and apertures can transform your images. The instructor will also teach elements of composition, posing, white balance, and some basic editing skills. Students are encouraged to use any digital cameras they have access to and want to learn how to use. Class will include instructional time with visual examples/Powerpoint, class shooting, and then review/viewing of class images.
