Learn the basics of using a digital camera at home, at work, or traveling, whether you have a point-and-shoot with some features or a fancy new DSLR. This intimate, laid-back, and non-competitive class will teach you how to use your new camera - or make better use of your existing camera's features.
With a mixture of lecture and hands-on photography, this class will cover taking photographs and setting up a digital photo workflow. You must take some photos before you come, but we'll also shoot during the day.
After shooting, we will overview the most important steps in the the editing process. The steps will be demonstrated with a variety of common software choices (iPhoto, Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop etc.). You will receive feedback, tips and management techniques based on the widely accepted ASMP Best Practices website and book as well as exposure and composition help.
Photographers who are just starting out and hobbyists/amateurs who want to get better. You should have either a DSLR or a point-and-shoot with priority modes and sound working knowledge of either a PC or Mac. If you are unsure about your computer contact BDA and the instructor will get back to you.
