    Digital Photography Bootcamp is just what it sounds like, a lot of hard work, a lot of learning and plenty of laughs along the way.  Please arrive for the class a little early (doors open at 8:30 AM) because we start promptly at 9 AM and we have loads of material to cover.  So much in fact, that we're afraid your brains will hurt or worse your heads will explode at the end of the day.  So to alleviate that concern, we email all students a link to download all the class material including, Power Point presentations, several ebooks and a bunch of other cool stuff.

    This class is designed for the first time digital SLR owner or Point-N-Shoot user.  Even if you've had a film class, this class is a good refresher on photo theory and practice. So, if you’ve received a camera as a gift or just want to get more out of your camera, this is the class for you. Students will learn the basics of digital camera operation. Topics include Exposure, Lighting, Flash Photography, Composition, Camera Controls, Equipment, Filters, and Lenses. Camera features and menu functions are covered in depth. Basic photographic techniques and skills are discussed, enabling the student to get the most out their camera. Use of Photoshop Elements and inkjet printing is also discussed. So, bring your digital camera and owner's manual and get on the road to better picture making and printing.

    Following the classroom portion is the Composition in the Field component (fieldtrip) 3:00 to 6:00 at a nearby park.  Composition in the Field allows the student to apply all the classroom theory in a real world environment.  Students get to practice the "rule of thirds," framing, "shoot high and shoot low," and many other guidelines to achieve better composition.

    After the Bootcamp a special photo gallery/album is created just for the students and they are encouraged to post some of their best shots from the field trip. After a week or so the instructor will give feedback and advice on what the student is doing well and how they can maybe improve their shots.

    We save the best for last, we'll almost last and that's our FCCP Education Guarantee.  It simple:

    Florida Center for Creative Photography students may repeat their paid class, workshop or bootcamp for FREE as many times as necessary to insure that they have completely learned the material presented by the instructor.  If you find a better guarantee from any other educational source in the Tampa Bay area, we'll pay for your registration.

    Lunch is around noon, and is only 30 to 45 minutes.  There are several nearby restaurants, but you are urged to bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks.  Limited power outlets are available in the classroom and computers are not required to take the class.  If you do bring a computer it is recommended to bring a power strip as well.  Note taking helps many students retain what they are learning, but is not required.  Most of the class material is available on the DVD distributed at the end of the class.  Note taking material is not provided or available in the classroom.

    I'd say this is probably not gonna happen because I can't access the payment option, but I'm an eternal optimist!

      You're right...just saw it was cancelled. Good thing I took a day off from work for this. I think everyone should contact living social and try to get a refund before it's too late, at least that's what I'm going to do.

    Is there a location for this event yet? I took the day off from work so I can attend. From reading the other comments I might have made a mistake in doing so.

    Dear Boot camp Event Organizers,
    Hey, are you guys having a big laugh at us Charlie Browns? Do you really think we're gonna sign up a third time for boot camp? We had a zillion messages out there about rumors the previous 2 boot camps were going to be cancelled. I and others messaged you personally for verification. You surely read those messages. Why no response? Then at the last moment, both times, you put out the cancellation message. The excuse today was the instructor was having heart surgery! Give me a break! To tell the truth, I DO want to do the bootcamp but, sheesh, I'd feel like an ass signing up again. A new member of FCCP.

    I am already out $$ because the previous two were cancelled with less than 48 hours notice so I had to pay the caregiver I had hired for the this one actually going to happen? If so WHERE since the landlord at the referenced location says FCCP is no longer there.
