Teaching Photography

Last week I was in Florida for a conference and spent a few extra days in Orlando visiting my family. My cousin Debbie set up a photo class for her friends that I taught. We spent the day at her house and I taught the students how to use their SLR cameras. In the morning we explored aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and white balance. Then in the afternoon we focused on various components of composition.

It was a fun day and I think the students learned a lot about using their cameras. If you are interested in me teaching a class for a group of your friends just let me know. Learn to use that fancy camera you have!

Here is the class description:

Photography: Moving beyond point and shoot

In this full-day class we will explore the technical and aesthetic sides of photography. Take your photography to a new level as you begin to understand composition, lighting, color, and how to adjust your camera to get the image you want. Learn how to move beyond the auto settings on your camera and control aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and more. Student will have time for hands-on practice and experimenting followed by critique, feedback, and troubleshooting of photos.

Course requirements: Digital SLR camera or other digital camera with manual controls

What a cool gift for her to give to her friends and a very practical class idea. If I run into a group of Miksangers who need this, I'll be sure to let you know!
