What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:

Have you had a digital camera for years and still get dark blurry pictures? Or perhaps you have purchased a new camera and are excited to learn the new functions? Well PhotoUno’s Introduction to your Camera is a great way to get started.

Our Introduction to Photography Class will help you start to feel more comfortable with your camera. It is great way to start your photographic journey!

In this class you will:

  • Start to understand how your camera works
  • Learn how light affects your images
  • Stop using auto mode, and start to take control in P mode
  • How to achieve a blurry background
  • How to create motion blur
  • And we will have exercises all throughout the class, so you can practice what you’ve learned

So come and decipher your digital camera. Take the first steps into taking better photos.

How is this class different from our Photography I class?

Introduction to your camera is a two-hour workshop where you will get a very basic understanding of your camera. You will work in P mode (taking partial control).

In Photography I you will learn to take absolute control of your camera in manual mode over a period of 6 weeks.

What camera do I need to take this class?
All you need for this class is a camera that allows you to take pictures in P mode.

No prior knowledge of photography is needed.

Make-up Policy

At PhotoUno our main objective is to make your experience at our school as pleasant as possible. Keeping this in mind, we understand that students who enroll in our courses may need to miss a class due to unplanned circumstances. 

Although PhotoUno has no obligation to provide make-up classes for students who can’t attend a class of the course they have signed up for, we will do our best to find a solution by:

1. Finding possible sections of the class for the student to attend in order to follow the sequence of the course. This option is free. This can be done up to two times for every course.

2. If we are unable to find a convenient date, we will offer the option of a private make up class that will be charged at a rate of $35 an hour.

PhotoUno is not obligated to grant student requests to switch courses.

Really helpful. A manageable amount of info, some of which we put into practice in the class. I left with some simple guidelines that I can use immediately to support the development of my photography. Definitely considering signing up for a series of classes, to go deeper.
