Newman Class

To master your photography, you need to know three things – 1) how to adjust your camera, 2) how to compose a great shot, and 3) how to fine-tune your finished images to get maximum impact. This 3-hour “Fundamentals of Photography” class, taught by local professional photographer, Ken Newman, teaches you the keys to making great images. 

Whether your interest is in capturing the beautiful landscapes, nature and wildlife, shooting action sports and events, or making portraits, this class will get you moving in the right direction by teaching you about your camera and lenses and how to work with available lighting to produce an image that gets a “Wow!” response from your friends.

Topics covered include:

  • Taking control of your camera - Understand aperture, shutter speed, and ISO settings.
  • Camera settings - Learn the most important features and menu settings that affect exposure.
  • Capturing motion – Manage focus, lighting and blur.
  • Managing light - How to photograph in any lighting conditions.
  • Composing a great image - Making an interesting photograph.
  • Image editing – Making small adjustments to your digital images to improve their clarity.

This Beginner-to-Intermediate Level class will give you hands-on experience with your camera, the opportunity to ask all of your important questions, and one-on-one coaching from an expert.  Ansel Adams, famed landscape photographer, said it best, “You don’t take a photograph, you MAKE a photograph!”  Attend this class and you’ll be well on your way to MAKING excellent photographs!

NOTE: Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their camera and lenses so you can follow along and learn how to set-up your camera.  A spare charged battery, formatted memory card, and your instruction manual are also very helpful to have on hand at the class.  This class is most appropriate for Digital SLR and Mirrorless cameras with manual exposure settings but all photographers will learn invaluable skills to improve your images.
