The Easy Intro to Canon Digital SLR Photography

Two things you must do to register for this class:

1. RSVP here FIRST and then . . .

2. You MUST register for this class ($39) on our Canon site here:

NOTE: On the Canon website, this is listed as a "two day class".  This is a typo and is a THREE HOUR evening class only.  We are working to correct the error.

If you’re new to DSLRs and you've recently stepped up to a Canon EOS, this class, taught by a Canon expert, will give you the information, insight and inspiration to really take advantage of your new camera and get the most out of it. We'll cover basics like the commonly used controls, explain when to use different shooting modes, give you an understanding of autofocus, image settings like RAW and JPEG, and even provide some insight into the world of lens possibilities. But it doesn't stop there... we'll then take that information and show you how to apply it to common shooting scenarios to get the best results, whether you shoot landscapes, portraits, action shots or just shots of the family on your next vacation.

This session is ideal if you're getting started: there's no pressure to learn about manual settings right at the start; instead, we assume you'll want to use your camera's automatic features much of the time as you learn your camera. No matter which Canon EOS camera you may have invested in (even if you own an older model), this session at Canon's downtown San Francisco showroom will remove much of the mystery of your camera's features and open your eyes to the possibilities that await.

What you will learn:

Fundamental basics of EOS DSLR Cameras

Focusing techniques

Clear understanding of the buttons and dials on your camera


Differences between JPEG and RAW

When to use flashLens choices

Techniques for great pictures in different shooting situations
