National Geographic Digital Photography Basics Seminar

This half-day seminar will teach you the basics of digital photography so you can take memorable pictures. Whether you are new to photography or just want to sharpen your skills, National Geographic's experts, with Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Jay Dickman, will deepen your understanding of how your camera works; explain key principles of focus, exposure, and composition; and share special shooting tips and strategies.

This seminar is lecture-based. It is not necessary to bring your camera, unless you want to use it to check specific settings or refer to it during the lecture.
