Digital Photography Basics
May 11, 2024 | Saturday 12:30-5:30pm
Faculty: Dan Hawkins

Do you have a digital camera and want to learn how to get the most out of it, or simply need a refresher? Our one-day digital camera basics workshop will help you venture beyond auto mode by giving you a practical, hands-on understanding of digital photography capture and camera settings. We’ll cover camera setting options, how they relate, and which settings are appropriate for various situations (portraiture, nature, or sports photography for example). Take this workshop in tandem with our Digital Workflow Basics workshop for a comprehensive foundation for your digital photography.
