Secrets of Better Photography

Master your digital camera and learn the secrets behind outstanding photos! Whether you have a digital SLR, a point-and-shoot camera, or something in between, you'll learn how to use it the way you want to in this hands-on course!  You also have the opportunity to have your lesson assignments critiqued by our knowledgeable teaching team of professional photographers.

You'll see how to choose the best photographic equipment for you and how to compose images with style.  Exposure topics like aperture, shutter speed, metering, and ISO settings will all make sense as we break them down into simple concepts.  If you want to work with manual exposure on your digital SLR, we cover that, too! We'll also explore natural and artificial lighting, freezing or blurring motion, portraiture, children's photography, pet photography, photojournalism, and digital editing options. 

With each lesson, you'll have an assignment to apply the lesson topic using your own camera and, if you wish, your teaching team and your classmates will comment on your assignment images in a safe, constructive and positive environment. 

After six short weeks, you'll see the difference in your photographer's eye and your photos!  Secrets of Better Photography is also an excellent class to prepare you for the more advanced class, Travel Photography for the Digital Photographer.
