DSLR Photography Basics 2
Jim Hobart
Saturday, Feb. 18, 10am-2pm
Members: $60, Others: $70
Required: Each student will need an interchangeable lens DSLR camera, at least one lens, a fully-charged battery, and a memory card with enough space on it for about 100 photos.
This is an extension of the Basics 1 class.  To fully benefit from this course, you need to have taken Basics 1, and/or feel you have a clear understanding of aperture, shutter speed and ISO, and how (and why) to control each.  This 4-hour workshop will build on Basics 1, covering such topics as exposure variables, quality of light, white balance, perspective, distance, composition, physics of light, contrast, negative space, relative size, focus and finding the critical moment.
You’ll be given the chance to practice each concept as you take photos of the beautiful Maitland Art Center and its surroundings.  For each new concept (as time permits), we’ll review some of each photographer’s images, and learn from each other’s experiences. Q&A will be frequent and spontaneous, and everyone will get a chance to try out every concept.
