This class is for beginner photographers with a DSLR or mirrorless camera. 

This four-part class focuses on the basics of the DSLR camera and photography. It is aimed primarily towards people new to digital photography and/or wanting to learn more about DSLRs, on-location shooting, working with available light and a brief intro to the basics of post processing with Lightroom and digital workflow.

Subjects covered:

  • Aperture Priority and Manual Modes
  • Basics of light
  • Composition 
  • Shooting portraits, landscapes, and more
  • Focal length and lenses
  • Photography gear

Beginner Lightroom and Intermediate classes are available every 5 to 7 weeks and are encouraged to further your photography education. Alumni of the Basic Class receive a discount on these continuing education classes. 

The class is part lecture and part critique. There will also be one optional field trip where you will shoot alongside your classmates and Amy. It will fall on a Saturday or Sunday from 8:30 am to 10:30am. 

This is a small student to teacher ratio class with a lot of personal attention for the students, which Amy finds is the best way to learn the basics of photography.

*As an added bonus: All students will be invited to join a private Facebook Group for continued support and growth.

REQUIRED EQUIPMENT: DSLR camera, a laptop computer (not required but preferable), Lightroom CC will be used in class.
