Out-Smart Your Camera! | A Digital Photography Crash Course

Madison WI camera class

Oh, the weather outside is...well, becoming frightful.  And that means that the holidays are just around the corner.  What does this time of year mean?  Well, aside from family gatherings and all kinds of festivities, it often means scrambling for the digital camera to preserve those fleeting memories.  There are scrapbooks waiting to be made and Facebook friends dying to see what you're up to, right?

If you're less than excited about the photos you got last year, perhaps it is time to get a little help with that camera of yours.  This two-hour class is a condensed version of my previous camera course and covers just what you need to know to take great pictures this year.  We'll go over camera basics, talk about what makes a good photo, and discuss some challenges we commonly confront when taking pictures indoors and outdoors.  Most importantly, we'll once and for all de-mystify what those little icons on your camera REALLY mean (and when to use them).

This is not a course for a professional photographer, but for a hobbyist or novice who needs a little hands-on help with their camera.  Perhaps for a bride or groom who wants to take great images on their honeymoon!  Most of my knowledge is helpful with DSLR cameras, but if you have a smaller camera that's stumping you I can work with that, too!  Here are the details:
