Digital Photography [The Basics]
Perhaps you own and shoot with a digital camera, but are ending up with less than satisfactory images. Or maybe you’re producing some great pictures, but don’t know how you’re doing it. This, then, is the course for you. All the basic photography concepts will be presented and discussed in depth. These will include: Aperture settings Shutter settings ISO settings Camera’s light meter Depth-of-field Lenses Backing-up images Cataloging images Digital editing programs You also will learn camera hand-holding techniques, what accessories to bring on photo shoots, whether a camera bag or camera vest is better for your shooting style, and why using a tripod or monopod can be advantageous to your photography. You should bring your digital camera, along with the camera’s instruction manual (Very Important). Also, be sure you have a full charge on your camera battery (ALSO VERY IMPORTANT). You will receive a handout when you arrive to class. It contains lots of information that will allow you to spend less time taking notes and more time listening and participating in class. This seminar is paired with two other Meetup seminars I’m teaching, each also a single, three-hour session: Digital Photography [Understanding Your Camera] Digital Photography [Creating Great Images] To receive a sound fundamental understanding of digital photography, I strongly recommend completing all three seminars. When I teach for various arts centers, community colleges, and local towns, these are the three areas I include in my Beginning Digital Photography course, which runs for a total of nine hours over a three-week period. These three specific seminars will be repeated at later dates. Therefore, if you cannot get to one, you can take it at another time. No Prerequisites Required. We will be meeting in the café at the Glastonbury Barnes & Noble Bookstore. You will be able to recognize my table by the portable monitor or two attached to the laptop computer. My cell phone number is[masked]. You might want to bring a light sweater. Some people find the place a little cool at times. Please note that no refunds are allowed unless the seminar is canceled. Also, switching from one seminar to another is not allowed. I need to know the exact number of attendees in a seminar to determine whether or not I can afford to run it. Thanks. Hope to see you there!!

What we're about

This group was created for those wanting to learn more about all aspects of photography. It is open to photographers of all levels... absolute beginners, true photographic masters, and everyone else in-between.

The Connecticut Photography Workshops Meetup is run by Peter Glass, a local professional photographer. He has over 25 years of experience shooting commercial and editorial assignments, and is a nonstop creator of stock photography images ( ).

However, the majority of his time these days is spent working either one-to-one or with small groups as a photography teacher, consultant, or mentor. He also designs and teaches photography classes and workshops for local towns, art centers, libraries, and community colleges. More information can be found at .

This group is a kind of digital photography school, offering classes of interest to people of all skill levels. The sessions are small in size, affordable, and informative. Many are very hands-on. Comprehensive handouts are distributed in most classes to ensure that only a minimal amount of note-taking by students is necessary. The instructor encourages questions during classes and makes sure all material is well understood by the end of each session.

Suggestions from members and involvement by them are greatly encouraged. Please realize that this is the place not only to beef-up your photography knowledge and skills, but also to mix and work with a great group of like-minded photographers.

We look forward to meeting and getting to know you, and to doing some great photography work together!!
