Back to Basics (Class 1) Let's meet at Cocowalk!

Class 1 - Back to Basics!

  • Basic Camera use (What's an ISO? Shutter Speed? Depth of Field? Apertures & stops? Mystery buttons on the camera?)
  • Digital age (What's a megapixel? What is a Raw file and what is it used for? What kind of file is best for what?)
  • Composition (What makes a good photo, well, good?)
  • Discuss the different types of Photography (Fine Art, Commercial, Photo-journalistic, etc)
  • We walk around Cocowalk, head towards the bay and photograph along the way.
  • Critique: discuss what we photographed, why we shot what we did, and what can be done to improve our skills.

Please note any camera will suffice for this class as the basics of photography apply to all types of cameras 

The class will be very informal and open to discussion & suggestions. 

The class should take about[masked] hours maybe a little longer depending on how much shooting time we want and how many people have questions.

No more than 4 people per class to have more one on one time.

Class may be canceled or rescheduled if no more than 2 people sign up and a refund will be issued.

I apologize for the inconvenience.


After RSVP, you will receive an email the day before with exact details on where we should meet up!

    Kenny was a pleasure to work with, and believe the objective of the course (to really understand how photography works) was met.

    This class was excellent for me. Laura is a true professional. She was well prepared for the session with an course outline, and topic visuals. I understand a lot more about the camera, shooting conditions, and subjects than I ever did. Now I will practice what I have learned, and meet her in the future to learn more.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
