Capital Photography Center – SLR Photography: The Basics

6-23-2014 12-21-21 PM

“Today’s cameras offer the photographer a wealth of tools that can lead to beautiful photographs. Capturing the perfect portrait of a loved one, a fleeting moment leading to the winning goal, or a stunning travel photo takes practice and know-how.

Learn how YOU, not the camera, can control the final image by choosing the appropriate setting for the look you want. Understanding how your camera makes an exposure in both the Auto and Manual modes will help you decide which settings to use to freeze or blur motion and control the depth of field to capture the image you want.

This class is designed for those who want to learn more about photography basics and exposure settings. (Appropriate for Mirrorless or DSLR cameras.)

Topics Include:

  • Camera Controls – Learn the most important features and menu settings.
  • Resolution & Compression
  • Auto Scene Modes
  • Manual Shooting Modes
  • ISO Settings
  • Shutter Speeds – Control motion to add emphasis.
  • Depth of Field – How the aperture affects what is in focus.
  • White Balance
  • Memory Card – Types and handling.
  • Lenses – The options.
  • Composition – What makes an interesting photograph.

Participants are encouraged to bring their camera.  As Marie discusses camera features or menu settings, you can follow along and learn how to set them.  An extra battery, memory card, and your instruction manual are also very helpful to have on hand at the class.

Participants of this class might also enjoy the SLR Photography – Beyond the Basics class, scheduled July 26, 2014.”
