ID : 16672   
« back to classes page

This course focuses on what all those buttons on your new camera actually do! Learn about basic photography settings and skills and become more confident in operating a DSLR camera. Students will need their own DSLR or mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras.

Students will receive significant one-on-one instructor feedback in this workshop-style course.

This course serves as a “preview” of Aims’ main campus Digital Photography I/II course.

Topical Outline – These topics will be covered in class, but not necessarily in this order, and not
necessarily restricted to only these topics covered:
– Shutter speed, ISO, Aperture
– Mirrorless vs DSLR cameras
– What accessories can my camera accept?
– How do I use my camera in manual modes?
– Understanding light, its qualities, and its impacts on camera settings
– Balancing gear value vs cost
– How to search for and purchase pre-owned camera equipment
– How can we become better at technical elements of photography.

Interchangeable lens camera required, so you can receive the most out of this course – DSLR or Mirrorless variations OK. Storage media for camera, photos required.

Computers with Lightroom provided by Aims lab, home laptop/computer to bring fine as well.
