Read what our students said about the Newbie Photography Boot Camp

In this information packed 4-hour "Newbie Photography Boot Camp", you will first learn how to "Unlock" the potential of your DSLR (or any camera that has a manual settings) by learning how to shoot “MANUALLY”. After you have learn how to gain creative control over your camera, you will spend the next two hours learning How to take Better Photos by using various professional techniques such as posing, lighting, composition, background selection, depth filed and efficient post-production workflow.


Please note, The “4-Hour Newbie Photography Boot Camp” is a seminar (lecture and class camera exercises) not a hands-on workshop. Although the class is primarily developed with the new DSLR owners in mind, many of our past students who only have point and shoot or compact digital cameras have found this class to be extremely informative as well. It will make you a better photographer!

Topics included in the Newbie Photography Boot Camp:

* How and Why Shoot in the Manual Mode * What is "Depth of Field" and How to Use It?
* How to Gain Creative Controls over your Camera * Exposure Triangle
* Shutter Speed and Artistic Vision * Understand Variable Aperture Lenses
* Best lens for the job * Working with people
* Elicit Expressions * Simple Poses
* Selecting Proper Background * Basic Lighting
* Sunny 16 Rule * Rule of Thirds
* Balance against Ambient Light * How to read a Histogram and Much More
