ICL: GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAMERA AND BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY - 5 Sessions
GETTING TO KNOW YOUR CAMERA AND BASIC PHOTOGRAPHY by Stephan Banakas, 5 Sessions, Wednesday, September 23 – October 21, 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Students are encouraged to have their cameras & manuals close at hand
The course is intended to be very basic and will begin by reintroducing the students to their cameras and taking them beyond simple “Point & Shoot”.
We will begin by discussing features that most of today’s digital cameras have. This will include various settings and when to use them.
We will also cover where and how to save your photos in a way that you can recover them without much difficulty, and most importantly, how to do all of this without using up all of your computer’s memory.
A number of other issues, light, shutter speed, aperture settings, and focus, and their interactions with each other will be explained.
Very basic rules of composition will be discussed. There will also be an explanation of “depth of field:” and to make it work for you. Shooting long exposures, the use of a tripod and natural light will also be emphasized.
We will be sharing and then critiquing photos in class.
