Learn the basics of using a digital camera at home, at work, or traveling, whether you have a point-and-shoot with some features or a fancy new DSLR. This intimate, laid-back, and non-competitive class will teach you how to use your new camera – or make better use of your existing camera’s features.

With a mixture of lecture and hands-on photography, this class will cover taking photographs and setting up a digital photo workflow. You must take some photos before you come, but we’ll also shoot during the class.

Part 1 – Getting to Know Your Camera and the Most Important Settings
Part 2 – Shooting with your New Skills
Part 3 – Post Processing Overview, Tips, and Final Questions

After shooting, we will overview the most important steps in the the editing process. The steps will be demonstrated with a variety of common software choices (iPhoto, Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop etc.). You will receive feedback, tips and management techniques based on the widely accepted ASMP Best Practices website and book as well as exposure and composition help.
