Beginners Photography Class - Akron-Summit County Public Library - 10 am - 3 hours
Capturing stunning photos isn't all about having the latest and greatest gear, it is about knowing how to use what you have!
This class is designed to give you a fundamental understanding of the basics behind DSLR photography, fundamentals that will help you excel in any style of photography.
We will start from the ground up, learning to control the basic exposure functions of your camera including ISO, Shutter Speed, and Aperture. We will also dive into what lenses you may need for your shooting situation; fundamentals of composition like visual balance, rule of thirds, repetition and leading lines.

I thought this class was great! I've been looking around for about a year to find a face-to-face hands on basic class for my camera and I found it! Graham was very thorough, patient and knowledgeable.
