What you'll learn in this digital photography class:

Get a solid grounding on the fundamentals of the world of photography. This beginner photography course covers well beyond the basics of your digital camera and exposure — it helps you create a solid foundation to start your photography journey. 

Classes will consist of different topics each week, including motion blur, composition and framing, focus control, built-in flash and the basics of digital post-processing. This is also an ideal course to learn the best tricks for night photography.

Students will be given weekly assignments and photo critiques, as well as in-class photo shoots which will further strengthen the techniques learned during each class. Should the weather permits, some sessions will consist of shooting workshops around Union Square, NYC, where students will practice shooting in real life scenarios. 

Students will also develop a series of photographs of their own choice of topic throughout the course that will be showcased in a group photo exhibit (optional). View samples of our Digital Photography I students' work here.

Available versions:
  • Standard:
    - 9 sessions: 2-hour classes, includes an exhibit.
    - 8 sessions: 2-hour classes, optional exhibit.

  • Intensive:
    - 5 sessions: 3-hour classes, optional exhibit.
    - 4 sessions: 4-hour classes, optional exhibit.
All versions cover the same material. Limited to 15 students.

Requirements: 
Any digital camera, with or without manual mode (DSLRs or Point and Shoots). For the first class, please try to bring your manual for reference.

Course Structure Suggestion: 
This course covers all of the basics and we therefore highly recommend that it is taken before any other course at PhotoManhattan (including Portraiture and Street Photography).

Notes: 
Film cameras are accepted in this course. Please note that while most content of this course is applicable to both digital and film photography, there will be terms to learn that apply specifically to digital photography. 

Should the assigned instructor become suddenly unavailable, we’ll allocate a substitute.
School Notes:
Each course comes with 1 Free make up class - schedule your makeup class hassle-free anytime. And free 24-hour cancellation.

Reviewed by Ambar G. on 7/20/2018
Very helpful and enjoyable. The instructor Charlie was amazing; he was patient, funny and detailed in his description of different camera features and image techniques. As a complete novice to digital photography, I highly recommend this course if you have never used a DSLR.

Digital Photography I: Mastering the Fundamentals
Reviewed by Patricia C. on 11/3/2017
Our instructor was great, thoughtful and a lot of fun. I learned a lot! It was a very small class as one of our students dropped out because there was a conflict. Perhaps I should not complain as we had almost a private class, but I wish there had been a few more students as more input from other students might have been inspiring as well. Enjoyed it and I would take a class with this company again.

The teacher was wonderful. He was extremely patient and gave very clear instructions. He was very organized. The classes were three hours each and I learned a great deal of information. One of the best classes that I took. The space was very upbeat and comfortable. I highly recommend this school.
