Intro to Photography - Understanding the Camera - Sept.
with Joseph Corrado
In this live course, we'll start with the basics of photography, covering the settings that all cameras share, to the basics of light and composition. It doesn’t matter what kind of camera you have—from a smartphone to a DSLR—the basics of photography remain unchanged. If your camera is a phone, we’ll talk about some different camera apps that can give you the same controls that regular cameras have. The goal is to create great images. Understanding how your camera functions will help you make more compelling images that you can be proud of. The final class will be an editing workshop. Bring your camera of choice to class!
