Photo Boot Camp- 1 day intensive photography class

Photo 101 Boot Camp- 1 Day Intensive Photography Class

So, you used to shoot a lot but have forgotten the basics. Or, you would really like to learn the essentials of how to use your camera but you want to do it quickly. Photo 101 Boot Camp is for you! This intensive four-hour photography class reviews the important buttons and dials on your camera and how to use them. Then we hit  the streets for a couple of practice sessions to use the knowledge you gain in class. There will be plenty of time for questions, examples of techniques, and demonstrations to help you learn.

This class gives you the  distilled version of the 5-week Photo 101. Are all of those buttons too confusing? Are your pictures coming out too dark or too blurry? Is the whole thing just overwhelming? This class will really help! We review the important stuff like aperture settings, shutter speeds, and ISO. Then we talk about how to use them. We even touch on composition and basic camera techniques that help you amp up your photography game.

 This class helps if the dials are confusing and you feel lost. Or, you just need a refresher.
