About this class:
This class is for beginners-intermediate; anyone who has a passion for photography, even if they don’t have the technical parts down. In this class we will go over the basics of using your camera, and participants will learn the basic techniques of photography from creative composition, lighting and more. Each week there will be examples and discussion on how to achieve different looks and styles of work.
Participants will be given assignments/projects to apply the skills they have learned and then review in the next class. After the first week, participants will be asked to bring their images to class via either flash drive, or email to Mr. Depriest before class.
Participants will need to bring their camera to each class. Bring equipment you want to learn how to use to the first class. The instructor has experience in most camera types, and is willing to help you individually learn the nuance of each camera body. A DSLR or interchangeable lens camera is preferable. Each class there will a chance for critique of individual work on an at will basis.
Note: Coming this winter: Photoshop 101 – Photography and Creative Editing
Briton Depriest will return and guide participants through the basics of editing digital photographs. Participants are not required to take the photography class first, but it is recommended to take these two courses in succession to gain a well rounded digital photography experience. Winter classes will be open for registration in Early November.
