This course is perfect for anyone who has taken an introductory digital photography course or who already has a basic understanding of aperture, shutter, and ISO settings. The course materials have been significantly upgraded, covering more topics than ever—in more depth than ever. This course will move you into advanced amateur status. You will learn when to use aperture priority, shutter priority, or manual modes; in-camera metering; how to set custom functions and interpret histograms; how to “drag” the shutter, clean sensors, and perform custom white balances. We will consider the legal rights of photographers, how to use exposure bracketing, external flash techniques, and the basics of camera raw imagery and composition. Comprised of lectures and Q&A sessions, this is mainly a hands-on class, so bring your DSLR or advanced “point and shoot,” its manual and flash, extra fresh batteries, and several memory cards to every class. An additional materials fee of $15 is payable to the instructor for a CD with valuable advanced photography software that will enhance image taking after the class.
