Photography 101 is the perfect all-in-one class for anyone who wants to jump into the world of photography. This course provides practical instruction in the fundamentals of digital SLR format camera operation. You will make the transition from fully automatic to fully manual shooting: this includes the fundamentals of cameral-use and optimize lenses, exposer, and focus to expand your creative potential.

We will also discuss the work of great photographers alongside your own photographs in order to better understand the fundamentals of composition and lighting to create compelling imagery. Like a great storyteller, you will develop a keen sense of eye that express your photographic storytelling.

About instructor:
