Digital Photography 101 & 202

Class Description:

In these photography classes you’ll learn how to use your camera to its fullest abilities while improving your photographic skills and creativity. These courses show you how to change various camera settings such as the shutter speed, f/stop, and ISO. Changing these settings allows you to start making creative decisions for the camera rather than relying on the camera’s auto/scene modes. By taking the camera out of auto, you will get better quality photos that you’ll be able to reproduce due to a basic understanding of the manual settings
