DPi (digital photo instruction) 101 Get to know your camera and its settings

This is a workshop focusing on how to use your digital camera be it a DSLR, point and shoot or camera phone.
We will go over the basics such as camera modes and what they are best used for,how to shoot in aperture priority,shutter priority and manual mode,ISO,white balance and the different light meter settings.
By the end of the 2 hour workshop you will be confident in what settings to use and how to change them.
My goal is to GET YOU OUT OF PROGRAM MODE and get you confident in your cameras settings.
The best way to get great images is to understand your camera and I can show you.
I will be offering more advanced classes soon.

    I came away from this workshop feeling like all I want to do now is to take photos! Loved it. Learned a lot and had a lot of fun. It is so exciting to see some nice results after only a short amount of time of learning from Thomas. Excellent instructor and obviously very intent on seeing that his students succeed. I'll definitely be attending more of his workshops. Thanks, Thomas.

    Awesome! I am so very happy that I joined this group and took this class. It was everything I hoped for and more. The instructor, Thomas, taught us all so much. I learned a lot. Thomas is so friendly and down-to-earth and easy to learn from. His enthusiasm about photography rubs off on you as he teaches about lighting, aperture, different settings and techniques. Thomas took his time teaching us, and made sure that we understood the different concepts. He took personal time with each of our cameras to show us different things. He is easy to talk with and therefore learn from. I can't wait to take another class ! My excitement about photography is so great, and this class enhanced it even more! It was great to share my enthusiasm with fellow photographers!
