Course Description
Photo 101 is for beginners with little or no experience in photography. Many semi-professionals have taken this class as a refresher course and have really enjoyed it.

In class, you will learn how to work your camera using manual settings. A large portion of the class will focus on exposure and composition. Shooting with natural light will be encouraged and instructed.

We will also spend time reviewing and critiquing each other's work. (there will be 1-3 shooting assignments per week.)

One of the classes will be a Saturday lighting demo where we will be learning lighting techniques and posing with models.

I realize some of you may have already taken classes and feel like you have a handle on basic exposure and composition. This class can still challenge you artistically.
