Basic Photography

I am so happy to announce that this class is the fourth in a series of free classes for members of the Saint Petersburg Photography Group! Once again Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church in downtown Clearwater has offered their facilities to our group. The instructors will be Dennis and Hank.

This presentation is meant for those either new to digital photography using a DSLR camera, or those that may have questions or problems.

Due to the time restraint of two hours we will be touching on a wide range of topics to introduce you to the overall photographic DSLR process rather than delving into any one area in detail. It will apply to most DSLR cameras even though some of the manufacturers use some slightly different terminology. It will be informal in nature as questions will be welcome at any time.

Topics covered will include but not necessarily be limited to; automatic camera modes; the interrelationship of, aperture, shutter, and ISO for the control of light and it’s pitfalls; composition using the rule of thirds, leading lines, etc.; on camera flash, and lens fundamentals such as depth of field, focus limitations and image compression…………..

 We will be meeting again at Peace Memorial Presbyterian Church in downtown Clearwater. It is easy to locate this Downtown Cathedral that is Pink! Parking is available in the church parking lot in the rear of the church campus.

Please attend if you RSVP. You must arrive by no later than 7PM as the church door will locked after that and we're not allowed to leave it open.
