DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY INTRO
Did you just get a new camera for Christmas? Not sure what all those 300 buttons on your camera do? This class is designed to empower you to switch off the "auto" button and take charge of your photos! Students will learn about the different settings: shutter speeds, aperture settings, white balance, timers, etc. Once you know what everything does, you will learn how to use that information! What settings are best for portraits, action shots, how to achieve depth of field. Students will also learn about taking better photos - composition, the rule of 1/3's and more. Then, some fun stuff: photo trickery, light painting and more!
