You may also attend individual workshops to augment your current knowledge and experience.
1. Introduction to Digital Photography
Learn all the basics about the camera, basic functions & modes along with a discussion about image handling and transfer to the computer.
A more advanced discussion of getting the proper exposure for good photographs without using "AUTO". This is an essential class for all photographers who want to take their photography further than the auto modes can get them.
When the lighting is not going to cooperate with us and we are forced to use the flash, we need to know what we're doing if we hope to get good photos. In this workshop we'll talk about some details of flash systems and methods of using flash effectively.
Let's get "down to earth" with a strong understanding of Depth-of-field and how to handle it for Landscape Photography. In this session we are going to deal with making photos that will interest your viewers every time.
Sometimes we step into another world and get up close and personal with our subjects. This session will help you present your close-up subjects in a way that will take the viewer of your photos into the tiny little world of details that surrounds us all daily.
White Balance is critical in all of our images and the RAW file format can make a tremendous difference in our end-results. This session concentrates on using the proper White Balance in the first place, and adjusting White Balance in the RAW image after-the-fact. We will also talk about the benefits of RAW images in common photographic situations.
Image handling and file management is a critical part of Digital Photography. Although many software programs can help you find and manage your photos, it is important that you "KNOW" where your photos are on your computer. This knowledge is not only handy when you want to find a photos, it's also important for you to properly backup and protect your photos.
This workshop is offered on a monthly basis on Saturdays and runs a slightly different schedule than all the other workshops in the series, so please click on the link and check your calendar carefully.
