Course description

Digital Photography - The Basics: If you are looking for an informative guide on how to use your DSLR camera, bring it along to this comprehensive introduction. Over a term you will become increasingly familiar with the various settings on your camera equipment. Our course is designed to give you a better understanding of what your camera can do and how to do it. The introduction covers the basic controls, making you more confident with the camera, while also illustrating and putting into practice what effect these controls have on the photograph. This course is geared towards getting you more comfortable and confident with the apparatus you have, and ultimately taking more satisfying and considered photographs. This basic course will teach you about the controls on your camera, what they do and how to set them. Each week a new technique or approach will be explored with practical guidance, from turning the camera on, to printing the final photograph.

Continuing and also going to try the Portraiture class. Richmond College is excellent.
