Sam D’Amico offers two classes that will help you to learn the basics of photography and how to use your camera in manual exposure mode.
When you have an understanding of the basics of photography and you use your camera in manual exposure mode you use your mind, instead of a machine, to create photographs.
This is a four week, twelve hour course.
By working your camera in fully manual exposure mode throughout the class, you will become thoroughly familiar with basic camera operation and will learn to use your camera settings and features as elements of effective photographic composition. Class includes in-class lectures/discussion, in-class practical application exercises, homework assignments and weekly self-critiques.
This is a one meeting, three hour course.
This hands-on, three-hour workshop is intended to introduce basic photographic principals that will allow the participant to understand how their camera works. Aperture, shutter speed, light sensitivity (ISO/ASA), lenses, camera metering and automatic vs. manual exposure settings will be explained and related to the participant’s camera. By the time the class is over you will know how to work your camera in manual exposure mode.
