Basic Photographic Composition

Basic Photo Composition Thumbnail

The foundation to making good photographs is understanding the basics of composition that are controlled in the camera. This course will explore how Focal Length, Aperture, and the Shutter Speeds are used to create the images you want to make through in-class examples and hands-on practice.

This course is appropriate for the beginning to intermediate photographer, and is applicable to most cameras (film or digital, P&S or DSLR). While the course is structured for cameras with manual controls, we will also be looking at the various ways to manipulate the setting on cameras with auto settings.

Note: Depending on the weather, we may have the opportunity to do the in-class exercises in the forest and/or meadow.  Please dress accordingly.

A cold lunch will be provided, as well as coffee, tea, and juice.
