What you'll learn in this dslr class:

Investing in a DSLR or mirrorless camera is just the first step in making good photographs. Now that you have the equipment, get introduced to the basics of photography and how your DSLR or mirrorless camera works.

This course will cover exposure controls and capture modes, and their ramifications, and will provide a basis for taking better pictures. Students will observe with their own cameras how changing settings changes results.

You'll need to bring your own DSLR, mirrorless, or hybrid camera to class! Class size 8-10, lecture and experiments.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

Instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and patient. I walked away with a better grasp of how my camera works, and look forward to applying that and continuing to learn more.

Excellent. I had a hard time figuring out how to use my camera and the teacher broke it down and made it very easy to understand. I was able to start applying what I learned right away.
