Studio 34 Creative Arts Center currently offers private photography classes. This format provides photographers of different levels an intensive learning experience with a professional photographer who is also an educator. Introduction to Photography Basics is for those looking to get familiar with their camera. For those who want to learn to take better photos with their smartphone, camera, or digital SLR (single lens reflex), this class is for you. Discover camera techniques and tricks to make your photos much better. Topics covered include basic composition and settings you can do on your own camera. For more experienced photographers, a private class goes into more depth as you learn the operation of your camera as well as what it takes to make great photos.
Choice of one or two session workshops. The two session workshop includes homework between sessions. First session includes an outdoor photo shoot, so dress accordingly. In the second session, students critique their photos and have time for questions, discussion and more photos. After two sessions, you will have a better grasp of your camera’s capabilities. One session class covers basics you want to learn.
This class is also for students who want to learn more about digital manual settings.
Instructor will contact you prior to class to discuss your type of camera and learning goals.
