Learn all your basic camera operations and get started the right way with a condensed package of essential information.

We'll be covering the basics of exposure, f-stops, shutter speeds, ISO, and dealing with different kinds of light.

Field Guide I: The Camera
Reviewed by Sue L. on 10/7/2015
Alan is a good photographer and a good teacher: smart, pleasant, organized, knows his material. Right away bat he informed us that we would spend the day shooting in full manual mode, a plunge into the deep end for some of us, but exactly the push we needed to work at being better photographers. It was a productive and enjoyable day. I would seriously consider taking more classes at BKC.

VERY Informative. Alan Winslow is a great teacher - patient, personable, interested in making the course as practical for each student as possible.

Reviewed by Chelsea H. on 1/28/2015
Kathy was wonderful!!! She really ensured that we were on the right track with our cameras, gave us enough time to practice, and above all answered all of our questions. She even stayed a bit late to answer of few of my lingering questions that I had. I would definitely recommend taking this class!

Reviewed by Stephanie W. on 12/15/2014
Informative. Fun. Engaging. Learned so many things about my camera, its settings, easy tips, and how to use it more creatively and effectively. My instructor was great.
Field Guide I: The Camera
Reviewed by Amy Rubenstein on 8/4/2014
Excellent class. Learned an incredible amount about my camera, reinforced by ample shooting time. Kathy is wonderful teacher. She broke through my intimidation of all the menus and dials on my camera by demonstrating how simple the concepts really are. Her use of metaphors was a big help. My comprehension of how to use my camera is not only 100% more than it was before, but I am able to use what I learned in this class to actually understand the "Directions for Use" guide. I signed up for Field Guide II when I got home from this class.
