A message from John
Modern cameras have a dizzying array of features and options. Understanding all those features is the first challenge, but more important is knowing what features you’ll truly need and when to implement them.
Knowing everything about every feature in your camera isn’t necessary because nobody needs (or uses) every feature built into a modern camera. The key to photographic success is figuring out which features you’ll need and when to use them.
These classes are designed to identify features, both large and small, and clearly explain how they can best be utilized.
We’ll start off with a broad overview of the product, then we’ll break it down and go though the camera piece by piece, feature by feature. By the end of the class we’ll be setting the camera up for a variety of types of photography, explaining each step as we go.
In the end you’ll walk out of the class with a very good understanding of your camera and the features you’ll need for your style of photography
This class is “hands-on” and students will be working with their camera throughout the whole class so make sure you bring a charged battery for both your camera and yourself.
