In this class, the focus is on intermediate photo skills and advanced set-up of your digital SLR camera. You will learn to take your camera off the auto scene modes and take charge of capturing images using the creative settings of dial modes. Topics discussed include: creative use of exposure controls; auto focus options; metering and exposure; use of histograms and highlights; understanding the relationship between ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings; and image resolution and white balance. Hands-on assistance will be provided while setting up your camera for varying lighting and scene conditions using appropriate metering and focus options. Some shooting in the Gardens is included, and students should bring photos for class critique. While all digital camera owners are welcome, this class is most appropriate for DSLR camera owners.
