WORKSHOP Digital Photography Basics

Grown-Ups Art Camp Workshop: "Digital Photography Basics "
Date: Saturday, July 11 from 10am-3pm
Instructor: Stacy Rausch
Workshop Fee: $125 members / $150 non-members
Class size: 6-15 participants

This 5-hour hands-on workshop (including a lunch break) will introduce students to their digital camera, and hopefully get them off the “program and/or auto” modes by the end of the day. We will spend some time talking about basic principles of photography, camera settings, rules of composition, etc. We will then venture outside near the gallery to shoot during a “mini-safari” of Del Ray to put your new knowledge into practice. After our shooting time we will download some selected images to a photo editing software program (Photoshop or Photoshop Elements) for a demo of basic editing skills (sizing, lightening, sharpening, saving).

Required Supplies: A Digital SLR camera or Point and Shoot camera with manual exposure mode capability, 1-2 memory cards, a fully charged battery, your camera’s full manual.

Optional Supplies: Tripod or monopod, laptop computer with capability of downloading a free trial version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, a Card Reader and USB cord, an extra camera battery.
