Learn your Camera's Creative Modes and Say "Goodbye to Auto"
Adult Enrichment / Personal Enrichment -
This exciting course will help you understand and teach you 35mm photography by learning just two modes! That’s right - two camera modes that will take care of 90% of your photographic subjects! Learn the basic recipe known as “the photographer’s triangle” while exploring your 35mm DSLR camera - your tool for creating and capturing your art with hands-on instruction. The goal is to get off the auto settings and learn to gain creative control of our camera. Improve your photography skills and become an artist by learning the "art and science” of 35mm photography while boosting your confidence.
Students should have their cameras available. A digital camera with "A" (Av) and "S" (Tv) is mandatory!
Instruction will take place through Zoom. Registrants will receive an email from Farmington Continuing Education (email@example.com) containing a link and instructor information before the start of the course.
