Bring the intimidation factor from 10 to 0!  Learn your camera like the back of your hand. After this class you’ll feel confident using your DSLR, and capture those pictures you’ve been wanting. Weather permitting, the class will go on a photo walk around downtown Providence.

During the first part of the class, students will learn camera basics including the camera body and all its ports and parts, the lens, focus and depth of field, exposure (f-stops, shutter speed and iso), white balance, and file settings. Students will take some snap shots in the studio to explore concepts along the way.  On the second day, students will learn about composition concepts and natural lighting. Putting all the pieces together, the group will walk around the downtown and practice the magic of photography! At the end of the course students will also learn how transfer their images onto a computer.
