Beginning DSLR class

For owners of DSLRs (interchangeable lens cameras) looking for a grounding in photo technique and camera control for better pictures of people, places and things. Using original images I'll show you how and when to imploy different camera settings for effect and offer compositional tips and positioning strategies to improve your portrait, sport/action, landscape and even flash images. A great starter class for new owners or those looking to brush up on their basic skills.

Some of the topics covered include:

~ The importance and affects of shutters and aperture settings

~ Using wide angle or telephoto lenses for optimal effect

~ Photographing subjects indoors without flash

~ Creating balanced landscapes

~ Macro or close up technique

~ Learning to evaluate light

~ Setting ISO and white balance controls

~ Using your flash indoors and out

While this is not a shooting event I strongly suggest you bring your camera!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
