Are you looking to learn the basics of your camera? Have you ever wondered what the difference between portrait mode and sports mode is? If so, then this Beginner Photography Class is for you.

In this class we will go over aperture, shutter speed, and each creative automatic mode (Portrait Mode, Night Mode, Sports Mode, etc). You will learn everything from how to turn your camera on, how to view your photographs, to how your camera is changing the way your photographs look in each Creative Automatic Mode.

This class is a one time class lasting an hour and a half. You will need to bring your camera (no smartphone please), your cameras manual, and a pen and paper to take notes on. Any camera with the Creative Automatic Modes (Portrait, Night, Sports, etc.) will work.

Plus, if you sign up for both the Beginner and Intermediate Photography Class, you will receive a coupon code for the Intermediate class.
