Digital Photography Essentials, 1/2 Day Class

This beginner class is for digital camera users who are interested in learning how to successfully use their camera beyond automatic/program modes. The class concentrates on the 5 most essential camera settings that have the most impact on the look of a photograph: focal length, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. We also discuss how to interpret the image histogram, a camera feedback mechanism, and use that information to adjust and optimize image exposure for the next shot. Students learn how to adjust these settings using their own camera and do some quick practice exercises to reinforce what they've learned. Class is held at ArtSpace Herndon.
