In the age of advancing technology, DSLR cameras are starting to come with more bells than a caroling troupe; but for all their advancement cameras still don’t have the key element needed to take stellar photos… human creativity. In the first of this three-part course we will cover the vital settings that go into capturing an image; ISO, White Balance, Metering, Focus, Shutter Speeds, Aperture, and more. In the second session, we will go out into the Garden and take pictures in RAW mode using the Aperture Priority and Full Manual settings. In the third and final session, we will cover post-production editing using Adobe Lightroom (30-day free trial available on Adobe’s website). This course requires students to come equipped with a DSLR camera, tripod, and a laptop with Adobe Lightroom installed (laptop needed for third session only, instructor will have a limited number of tripods to loan to students in need).

Fee for all 3 sessions: MBG members $195/non-members $225. First 2 sessions only: Members $130/non-members $150. Third session (post-production) only: Members $65/non-members $75.
