  • Photo 101- Intro to photography


    Take the first step- Photography 101- Learning to control your camera

    Established in 2006 this is the original Photo 101 class in Tampa. 

    Photo 101 is a great class to start getting your camera off of automatic and better understand using the buttons and dials. Whether you are trying to take better family photos or want to take your photography to the next level,  you've got to be able to control your camera. This is the class for you! It is five weeks of  essentials of camera operation and learning how to make great pictures. It will help you get the right picture every time instead of wondering why you shoot 20 images and 1 comes out good. You will begin thinking more like a photographer. We will discuss lighting, posing, composition, and the fun parts of photography. This class is a 5-week series with a working professional photographer, much more comprehensive than other 3-4 hour seminars offered in Tampa. Make sure to see the comments made by past students!
