Fundamentals of Photography #101 Morning class
Ignore the stated end date and time because this MeetUp site won't let me not post an end date and won't let me post an end date that goes out 6 weeks. So the class is from April 26 to May 31. The hours are 10:30 to 2:30. It is on Thursdays. This six-week, 3 1/2 hour (usually 4 hours per night or even 4 hour day classes), seven-session class is designed for the beginner who has recently purchased a digital SLR camera, mirrorless camera or for people looking for a refresher on technique. This class covers exposure, shutter speeds and f/stops. Learn composition techniques such as: the rule of thirds, leading lines, S curves, C curves and the light isolate theory. In addition to learning the use of filters, flash extension tubes and tele-convertors, students will study travel photography, portraiture, close-ups and how to overcome full automation in today’s cameras. Learn about wildlife, nature photography, how to shoot sports and we may view artistic portrayals of the nude as fine art. Any digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera that can be adjusted for manual operation as well as automatic exposure mode is welcome in class as long as it is not an automatic exposure camera (no point and shoot cameras permitted). Expect homework assignments! Expect reading assignments! Do not be misled. The word “fundamental” in the title does not mean elementary photography. Experienced photographers would still benefit from this class just as much as a beginner. The digital photographer will learn about the merits of RAW files compared to JPEG or TIFF, white balance and histograms. The seventh session is an all-day Saturday session at the Farmington Hills campus from 10:00am to 5:00pm called “Break the Rules”.
