What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:

Have you finally bought that camera you’ve been coveting for months, but now realized you have no idea how to use it? Is your schedule already packed, or do you really want to learn how to use that camera before that big summer trip you’ve been planning?

This action-packed, fast-paced course is designed for people who want an express introduction to their camera. In this one-day crash course, you will learn the basic principles of photography, as well as techniques that will help you make high quality, creative images by mastering a few basic concepts.

Students will walk away with a strong understanding of ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, as well as the ability to harness these fundamentals of photography to create interesting compositions.

At the end of the day, that new camera will be demystified. You will feel confident using your camera in a variety of common situations, from photographing portraits to capturing the action at the baseball game.

Important Thing to Note:

This course will only cover semiautomatic modes - Aperture priority and Shutter priority.

Required Equipment:
  • DSLR camera, Mirrorless camera or Compact camera, which has Aperture (A/Av) Priority, Shutter (S/Tv) Priority and Manual Mode.

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.

Erica L.

Attended: Photography Crash Course 1
I bought a DSLR camera but had no idea how to use it other than the preset dials. This class was everything I was looking for. Perfect for a beginner who runs into some trouble getting the picture they want to take. I learned how to adjust light sensitivity, shutter speed, create different depth of field and bettter focus. Definitely recommend.


Attended: Photography Crash Course 1
Very good review of the basics of DSLR photography. We didn't get through all the material, but what we covered was helpful.

Great class!

Attended: Photography Crash Course 1
Excellent class, I'd had some photography experience before, but this was an excellent refresher that also taught me stuff on my DSLR that I'd never worked with before. Everything was laid out clearly and built on prior concepts well, and I've already signed up for their next level class. Highly recommended!
