If you're enrolled in an upcoming date, this simply means that date has now sold out.
This class is designed for those who have taken any of the Photography Basics classes and want the opportunity to work in the field to reinforce the material covered in the classroom. We’ve encouraged you to leave the Auto settings behind and to shoot in the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual modes so now it’s time for some hands-on.
We’ll review the exposure settings and then photograph around our location and practice using various settings to achieve the look you want in the image.
We'll be working with you to reinforce:
Our location at the Tidal Basin provides plenty of photo opportunities. We’ll find the beautiful Cherry Blossom trees, the Jefferson, the Washington Monument framed in Cherry Blossoms and so much more. Join us and come away with stronger skills for setting exposure and capturing exciting images that you’re proud to show off.
Any camera with the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual modes is appropriate. Bring your camera and any or all of your lenses. We’ll work with what you have in your bag. No tripods needed for this class.
Please note: It is assumed you have already taken a Basics class and are somewhat familiar with the manual exposure modes. We will not be able to introduce you to this material in this class.
