Do you get overwhelmed while using your DLSR? Do you want to take great pictures of your family and friends but just don't know what all those buttons do? Then this class is for you! I will teach you how to not be afraid of your camera and how to capture a beautiful image.
In plain English, I will explain what all those buttons on your camera do, how to use them and when. You will also learn that photography uses both the right side and the left side of your brain and that in addition to learning about your camera and all of the technical things that go along with it, you'll need to understand how to be creative, what is good composition and how to use proper lighting. This class is all about putting those two aspects together to take beautiful images of your loved ones that you will cherish forever.
