Whether shooting digitally or on film, it is necessary to have an understanding of the fundamentals of photography. In this course, gain an understanding of exposure and the settings that effect it, such as shutter speed, aperture, and ISO. Discuss and demonstrate subjects such as white balance, histograms, and composition techniques. By using images shared by both the students and the instructor, learn how to use your camera to its fullest potential and create images you will be proud to share with family and friends.
