Do you enjoy photography? And do you ever wish your photos turned out better? The key to improving your photos is understanding your camera so you can go beyond the much too-predictable automatic settings. In this class, explore the key settings on your camera that will make a difference in the quality of your photos.
Modern cameras are like computers -- you don’t need to know everything the tool offers, just the most important settings to help you achieve the results you want. Learn about basic camera operation and how your camera is set-up. Then discover how to change the settings by using Aperture, Shutter Priority and others that will allow you to get more creative.
After this class, you will definitely see improvements in your results, and understand how you can continue to explore your camera.
