Ready to break out of "auto mode" on your digital camera? Working indoors and out, we'll decode the mysteries of digital cameras in a friendly and fun way as we see how to make properly exposed and focused images, identify and select white balance settings appropriate to the subject, and figure out how the focal length of lenses affects final images. You'll also create a set of reference images that demonstrate the workings of various controls on your camera. Appropriate for DSLRs and point-and-shoots with manual controls. (Point-and-shoot photgraphers: please consider "Make the Most of Your Point-and-Shoot Camera", LLART 196.) Please bring your camera and manual to class; post-it flags and/or a highlighter to annotate your manual are also recommended. Want more guided practice with the basics? Take Digital I (LLART 115) either before or after this class. Class is limited to 10.
