The Auto Mode Rebellion [RI Photography Class]

I am happy to announce that this Saturday, at Craftland in Providence, yours truly will be teaching a course on photography. It is open to the general public. Here's the info right on the Craftland site, complete with how to sign up - click here. It's not too late, I actually think you can sign up until the morning of, although that makes it hard for me to know how much stuff to bring.

This class is for anyone who likes taking pictures and wants to know enough to be dangerous. It's so much easier to do things when you understand how it works, so the goal of this session is that you walk away understanding the fundamentals of photography. There will be some classroom time as well as some shooting and hands-on time so you can practice what you're learning.

Here's the description from the website:
"You bought a DSLR camera, read the manual (or maybe not), but your pictures are still blurry/dark/grainy/dull? Take your camera out of auto mode! Familiarize yourself with basic photography concepts that will change the way you shoot. By the end of the class, you should have a firm grasp of ISO, aperture, shutter speed, flash, and white balance. We'll touch on composition, lighting theory, and HDR. We will have some lecture time, an open Q&A session, some time to go out and shoot, and a peer review and critique. Handouts will be provided."

Class space is limited to ten people and I'm not even sure if it's filled up or not yet, but it's worth a try to get in.

Hope to see you Saturday!
