Free Class for Beginning Digital Photographers Starts (7:00 PM EDT)
“Everything you Wanted to Know About Digital Photography but Were Afraid to Ask”
Again this year DPS will present a free 10-week course for those new to Digital Photography. The course is designed for beginning photographers who wish to learn how to take control of the camera, and use its many functions for creative effect.
Among topics to be discussed will be: how a camera works, all about lenses, using shooting modes, effects of shutter speed, aperture and ISO, basic composition, basic post-processing, and lighting. Students will be expected to complete basic homework assignments which will be reviewed each week.
The course will begin on Tuesday, October 8 and run for 10 weeks. There will be no class Thanksgiving Week (Nov. 26). Classes will be held in the Longwood Room of the Claymont Community Center, 3301 Green Street, Claymont, DE. Sessions will start promptly at 7:00 PM and end at 8:30 PM.
Instruction will be though discussion, Power Point presentations, and “hands on” demonstrations. The course will be taught by four DPS Salon class members: Marvin Gerstein, Larry Hinson, Bob McCaffrey and Gary Walter.
Registration is open to all DPS members, as well as the general public, so please tell your friends. A sign up sheet will be available at all DPS September meetings, or you can register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your phone number in the email.
Students must have a camera with interchangeable lenses (you don’t need more than one lens) such as a DSLR or mirrorless camera. Certain other cameras which have full controls for manual exposure may also be acceptable if approved by the instructors. If you have questions or need more information, send an email to email@example.com, or see one of the instructors at a DPS meeting.
