Introduction to Digital Photography

Workshop: Introduction to Digital Photography with Moira Lennox

Twin Cities Photography Meet-up Group (Minneapolis/St Paul, MN)

Join us for an exciting photography class designed for digital SLR camera enthusiasts, hobbyists, and aspiring professionals.

This class is to take you beyond just clicking on auto mode. You will learn about the power of your digital DSLR camera.  First we will review the basics of exposure then we will translate that to all those buttons, features and menus on the camera that control it.

Topics that will be covered:

Exposure

  • §  Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO and understanding the relationship
  • §  Checking your exposure: how to read the histogram
  • §  Adjust it when the camera gets it wrong
  • §  Using Exposure Compensation to correct for over- or under-exposure
  • §  Metering Modes
  • §  Understanding Histograms
  • §  White Balance (Color temperature)
  • §  RAW vs. JPG

Camera Overview

  • §  What is the right camera for you
  • §  The Camera: Camera Features, Buttons and Menu
  • §  Lens

The instructor will have a Canon camera to use as a demo but please bring any make or model. Please bring your manual as well; they can be very helpful when looking for features and settings.

As noted, this was a really great class. Moira is a funny and engaging instructor with a really well throught-out class and examples. It was brief, but comprehensive. This could easily be expanded to a full day too. It's worth noting that, while the focus was on the use of photoshop, there was a lot of information on photo editing in general that is directly applicable to other editing programs. A really good class by a really good instructor. I hope to see her offer more classes.

This was a fabulous class. Our trainer was amazing. Patient, knowledgeable, thorough...she knew exactly what we should be doing as beginners and was able to answer every question with authority. She was supportive, and encouraging...everything you'd want in a teacher/mentor. If I see her name on any other meet ups...I'm there. Thanks for a great experience!

Moira took a very complex topic and condensed it down to elements that even I could understand. There were so many facets of this topic that I may not be able to repeat many of the procedures that she taught us but she did do a wonderful job of organizing things well and keeping the process on track at a fast pace! Thank you Moira!
