A 4-week, self-paced course in the fundamentals of DSLR / Mirrorless photography with recorded videos, downloadable slides, and live sessions for feedback and more in-depth learning. Learn to use your camera with manual exposure, to control depth of field and movement, and basic composition techniques. We will also talk about how to focus properly, how to avoid blurry images, and build a foundation that allows you to start using your camera like you’ve envisioned!
Time / Date:
* It is ideal to attend the virtual sessions, but you can also learn at your own pace and watch the replay of the videos.
Week 1: Introduction to Manual Exposure
Week 2: Exposure & Motion
Week 3: Exposure & Depth of Field
Week 4: Basic Composition Principles
What equipment do I need to succeed in this course?
You’ll want a basic DSLR or Mirrorless Camera. Anything that allows for manual exposure (meaning you can adjust aperture, shutter, and ISO), and interchangeable lenses.
What if I’ve never used a camera before? I’m a little intimidated by learning online.
This course is truly a fundamentals course!* I will take you from beginner to intermediate photographer in 4 weeks. I’ll walk you through each step with simple instructions. Most of my students start with zero knowledge and walk away feeling confident with their cameras.
* It is true that you should take the time to read your camera manual and/or watch a youtube video just to see how to find the dials that adjust the Aperture, Shutter, and ISO on your specific camera model. I will walk you through all the technical and creative aspects of these features.
How much time should I spend on the material?
Our weekly meetings are about an hour. I suggest spending 3-5 hours per week practicing the lessons and working on the assignments.
