Working with Your Digital Camera

Learn how to find and use all of the options and programs on your digital camera, and how to use them to take better pictures. Learn how to access the different parts of your camera’s menu, and work with focusing, zoom settings, resolution, compression, compensation, color, saturation, contrast, flash, and other camera capabilities. Some compositional elements for a good photograph will also be discussed.   The second class will meet at an alternate location on Saturday morning to work with our cameras in the field. In the third session, students will bring prints of their work to class for feedback.  Students should already have a digital camera and should read the camera manual prior to the first class. Please bring your camera and camera manual to the first class. For more information, please contact Glenn Chang at (765)447-2462.

Take Better Photographs

For photographers of any level, learn how to use your camera to make consistently good photographs. This course helps students explore how to design a photograph, utilizing common composition techniques. Learn how to work with the elements in a picture and principles such as the rule of thirds and framing, to capture the pictures you have visualized.

In the third session, students will bring prints of their work to class for feedback. Please bring your camera and camera manual to the first class.

Fall Colors Photography Field Workshop

Practice working with your camera and developing your eye for composition while photographing Fall Colors and outdoor landscapes, including a creek and ravines in a hardwood forest. At the first class, you will be able to work with a professional photographer in the field at the Clegg Arboretum in Lafayette, The 2nd class will then meet the following Wedfnesday evening at Morton to get feedback on their work. To reach the arboretum, drive north on Creasy Lane. Creasy turns east and becomes Eisenhower Road as it crosses over I-65. At the T-intersection at the bottom of the hill turn left and go up a hill. The Arboretum is just before the top of the hill with the parking lot on your right, where the class will meet. Be sure to bring enough memory cards, a tripod if you have one, and lots of batteries. For more information, please contact Glenn Chang at (765)447-2462.
