Manual Camera Control Bootcamp - $249

SATURDAYS, APRIL 18 & 25 FROM 9AM TO 1PM (TWO-SESSION VERSION)

Automatic settings on cameras can be convenient but can also frustrate photographers. Manual control of a camera assures proper exposure and consistent results. An understanding of Aperture (f/stops), Shutter Speed, ISO, lenses, and light control all contribute to the success of each and every photograph you make. Your camera is a tool built to be controlled, not a gadget with a mind of its own. When you are ready to make the commitment to learn, this class is the key to open up all possibilities in your current and future photography.

Students should bring their laptop and will be provided a set of images so they can “click along” with the instructor. Students are also welcome to work on their own images.

Intermediate Photo Editing: Lightroom Classic CC - $129

SATURDAY, FEB. 29 FROM 9AM TO NOON | MONDAY, APRIL 20 FROM 6 TO 9PM
