This workshop-style class is an introduction to the basic principles of photography and camera operation. Explore your creative potential with a camera. Through discussion and hands-on practice, learn the fundamentals of camera operation and how motion, lighting, and focus can be used in creative ways. Find out about the key elements of exposure--shutter speed, f-stops, and ISO--and take part in a variety of activities that help you apply your new skills to photographic self-expression. No prior photo knowledge is required. Bring to class a DSLR or other camera with manual exposure options. Please note: All students have the option of attending this workshop with one parent (at no charge). However, students ages 15 and under MUST be accompanied by a parent for the entire workshop.
