Nikon 3k/5k class

I'll plug in and review the functions on Nikon's D3100,3200, 5100 and 5200 DSLR cameras. These camera functions and controls are very similiar so everyone should be able to follow along. Using images and real time projected function display we'll cover camera settings and explore shooting techniques for a variety of situations.

Some of the topics covered include:

Scene mode effects

Setting shutter, apertures, ISOs and white balance

How such settings effect your images and when using one or another should help

Lens selection and autofocus control for better composition and sharpness

Use of flash: built in and shoe mount, indoors and out.

$29.95 per person contact the store to register without paypal

please include billing address and phone with your transaction

Instructor: Jess Thompson

I encourage you to bring your gear but this is NOT a shooting event.

    Great class. Small in number but large on applicable content. Left feeling much more comfortable going out of the AUTO setting and seeing what my 5100 can do.

    My husband just bought me a Nikon and I want to attend a class to learn how to use it properly. Unfortunately, my husband has a job interview out of state tomorrow and I will be going with him. Will there be any future classes coming up? I really want to learn how to use my camera. It's been a wish of mine to finally have my own Digital SLR camera.
