This is an old class! Check out the current classes, or sign up for our mailing list to see if we'll offer this one again.

This class might be over, but get first dibs on new sessions and brand-new classes by signing up on our ultra-rad mailing list.

Get the knowledge behind serious picture taking. This three-session course introduces and expands on the fundamentals of photography through lectures, in-class shooting exercises, and short homework assignments. Students become familiar with topics such as exposure controls, metering modes, lighting scenarios, basic compositional tools, and histograms—and how all of these affect the photographic image. Coming away with practical understanding of camera operation and the medium in general, you’ll be able to make and evaluate photos with insight.

To get the most out of this course, students are encouraged to have a DSLR camera. However, digital hybrid and point-and-shoot cameras with manual controls are also acceptable. Please be sure you can attend all three sessions before registering, as it's very difficult for us to accommodate makeups.
