What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:

In this beginning workshop, students will learn all the controls and functions on their digital Single Lens Reflex (SLR) cameras, basic camera operation (including f-stop, shutter speed and ISO), fundamental concepts of photography, and how to control the photograph’s final look. 


Discussions include composition and light, how to get the background in or out of focus, how to stop or blur motion, why to use one ISO over another, when to use a tripod, and how to use the camera’s light meter to provide the best exposure. Other topics covered include using the appropriate lens for a desired effect (the difference between a prime lens and a zoom lens), how to hold the focus on a subject if changing camera positions (exploring auto focus modes and manual focus), and how to properly hold the camera.


Digital camera technology will be covered thoroughly, such as how to adjust the camera’s white balance, how to view and delete images, the difference between shooting RAW and JPEG, choosing the appropriate memory card, and how to transfer the image from the camera to a computer.


The goal is to provide each participant with the technical information needed to operate his or her digital SLR camera properly and with the confidence and ability to shoot consistently in manual mode.


Students will work in both black-and-white and color while learning how to “see” in the chosen mode. Weekly assignments will be given followed by critiques during the next class session.

Open to students who own a digital SLR or mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings.

The class had no structure and wasn’t suitable for actual beginners. We rushed through all the crucial information and then were invited to go outside and just shoot. As a beginner, I need a lot more support and structure. I need to fully understand how my camera works. I didn’t get that. It felt intimidating. Not the way I want to learn.

This course was really well designed, each week and each assignment touched on a different subtopic of camera use/composition. Rebecca was so knowledgeable and her feedback was very helpful. I now know how to use my fancy camera, and will certainly do another course with LACP. Totally worth the money, do it.
