In the information packed "Newbie Photography Boot Camp Part I", you will first learn how to "Unlock" the potential of your DSLR (or any camera that has a manual setting) by learning how to shoot the camera in the “MANUAL MODE”. Once you have learned how to shoot in the manual mode, you have now gained creative control over your camera. In addition, you will learn how to take better photos using various professional techniques such as posing, lighting, composition, background selection, and depth of field. In the "Newbie Photography Boot Camp Part II", students will learn efficient ways of post-production workflow in order to produce the best image possible.
Please note, 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!
"Newbie Photography Boot Camp Part I and II" are seminars (class lectures consist some photo exercises) not hands-on workshops.
