Photo 1: Introduction to Photography
Once you go to "manual" mode in this class, you'll never go back to "Auto" mode!
Think of it this way; you find an interesting subject, maybe a tree in a small field of grass, maybe there is a road beside or behind it, you choose a good spot and you press your shutter release. If you are in "auto" mode you get an acceptable image. If you have taken this class you will be able to create about 15 different images without having to take a step. Once you gain that kind of control you will never go back to "Auto".
This course includes a general survey of photographic equipment and technique, aperture and shutter control, basic exposure, focus control, depth-of-field, motion capture, and basic composition theory. This course also includes evaluation of students' shooting and improvement.
No previous knowledge of photography is required, however students will need a camera with full manual capabilities (preferably an SLR/DSLR). Upon completion of the course, students should possess a good understanding of their equipment, basic technical and compositional strategies, as well as an increased sense of confidence.
This course has 12 hours of instruction (two hours per class meeting time)
