Photography 102: Camera Operations and Exposure Basics - Part II

This class is a continuation of the first class.  However, it is not mandatory for you to take the first class in order to take this class.

This class is for the beginner photographer with a Digital SLR, or for the moderately experienced photographer that is looking to refresh their basic knowledge of photography and how to operate their camera.

Topics covered in this class will be:
• Measuring Light with Your Camera
• Light Meters
• Understanding and Setting White Balance
• Custom White Balance
• Understaning & Managing Depth of Field
• What to Know About Auto Focus
• File Types - JPG vs RAW
• Photo Composition

The class will last about 2.0 hours and will include in class exercises, so please bring your cameras.

Here are some highlights about what people said about this class when I have taught it in the past....

"After taking many photography courses, I have never understand it as well as I do now. Anyone looking for a great basic introduction to photography, taking Darryl's course would be three hours well spent. " - Ann

"Wow, I'm very impressed with Darryl and his ability to communicate to us 'newbie's' on a basic, non technical level. " - Julia

"Great teacher! I learn alot and it does not feels like 3 hrs because it is entertaining." - Maya

“ Meaty, succinct, clear explanations, practical, useful. Delivered with grace, humor, patience, and thoughtfulness. " - Theabroma

"I think Darryl is the best!" - Darryl's Mom
