  For those who know how to use their cameras but feel they are not getting the results they expected, this course will focus on understanding composition and exposure for the types of situations likely to confront the family photographer.  The class will teach how to get out of “auto” mode of your camera so that you can achieve the right settings for the right photograph.  Students will complete photographic assignments between classes and present their work for classroom discussion and constructive criticism.  To maximize the value of the class, students should have a camera with manual controls, though some of the lessons will even be applicable to iPhone photography.  Students should understand the basic operation of their camera including the ability to transfer images to a computer and the internet.  The first session will focus on the various tools available to photographers, including types of cameras, lenses and accessories, providing valuable knowledge for anyone considering changing or upgrading their camera gear.  In subsequent classes, students will learn to apply  those tools to shoot family portraits, take sports photographs of your children, and capture vivid landscapes while on vacation.  By the end of the course, students should have a basic understanding of rules of composition, use of light, posing portraits, depth of field, and the exposure triangle including ISO, aperture, and shutter speed.
