Online Learning Class via Zoom
In this class, students will learn about the cameras in their phones or tablets and about basic camera operation, including image enhancements on their devices. Discussions include the technical side of how to use the camera apps and settings. Photographic concepts including composition, light and controlling focus and exposure will be stressed. We’ll study capture apps and why/how they differ from our built-in, native cameras. Other topics covered include how to properly hold the device, differences between optical and digital zooming and add-on accessories to enhance our photographic experiences.
Digital camera technology will be covered thoroughly, such as how to adjust the camera’s white balance, how to view and delete images, when to shoot RAW versus JPEG and how to transfer the image from the camera to a computer. The goal is to provide each participant with the technical information needed to operate his or her camera phone properly and with the confidence and ability to shoot in all available lighting situations.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although open to Android users, the instructor will be teaching from an iPhone centered delivery platform. Select apps (some at a small cost) will be required for this class.
A link for the Zoom class meeting will be emailed to the attendees about one week prior to the start date. Please read the instructions included in the email. If you have additional questions please contact Kevin Weinstein or Janis McGavin at email@example.com.
Dates: Mondays and Wednesdays, March 22 – April 28, 6:30-8 pm PST
