Understanding Your Digital SLR Camera
This will be rescheduled as soon as possible.
Having trouble knowing what many of those buttons and dials on your camera are for and how to use them? Easy to happen because of all the “stuff” camera manufacturers keep adding to their cameras so to entice you to purchase their cameras. This 3-week class is designed to help make sense of much of what is offered on your camera.
Some of the topics to be covered: shutter speeds, f/stops, controlling motion, what’s in focus, understanding your camera meter, composition,
exposure compensation, and how, why, and when to adjust the ISO. Fun easy photo assignments will be given and critiqued. Participants will receive an 8x10 print of their favorite image taken during the class.
To complete the assignments you will need your own camera for this class, the camera should be digital. The instructor is long time award winning professional photographer, Bob Guiliani. He and his wife, Linda, own Guys & Dolls Photography in Clare. To register or if you have questions, please contact Bob at 989.240.3644. The class is offered by the Clare County Arts Council and will be held at the Clare Union Depot located on 4th Street in Clare.
