Learn the basic concepts of photography and how to use your camera. To get the most out of this class, bring a digital camera that allows you to set the f-stop and shutter speed (DSLRs and most advanced compact cameras have a manual aperture priority/shutter priority mode that works for this).

Topics covered include how f-stop, shutter speed, and ISO work together to determine exposure; using white balance; the effect of in-camera processing settings on color; using your histogram; bracketing exposures; working with light; basic composition; and how to create the photograph you want.

There are 4 classroom meetings (Thursdays) and 3 optional field trips (Saturdays) to practice what we cover in class. Exact times of the field trips will be discussed at the first class, but will be on Saturday evenings a few hours before sunset. You are responsible for transportation to the field trip location.

Classroom dates (Thursdays): September 12, 19, 26, and October 3
Field Trip dates (Saturdays - optional): September 14, 21, and 28
