Education Schedule and Information

Camera Basics

February 24, 2018
Goodwood Library

There will be 2 sessions.  Session 1 from 9:30 to 11:30 and Session 2 from noon to 2:00 pm.  There is a limit of 20 per session to facilitate interactive learning.  You will learn about aperture, shutter speed and ISO and how they relate to give you control of your camera and images instead of shooting in auto mode.

Main objective is: Don’t just take a picture, make an image – achieve creative control of your camera and image making by getting out of auto.

The class will feature practice and Q&A over lecture to help you learn:

The role of aperture and how to control it

Use of shutter speed in creativity and proper exposure

The purpose of ISO and relation to shutter speed and aperture

Manipulating the “exposure triangle” by integrating shutter speed, aperture, ISO

A brief introduction to other camera controls and basic composition


Students must: Bring a camera with manual controls (email if you need clarification).  A charged battery.  A usable memory card for their camera.  And finally, lots of questions and a willingness to learn by doing, trial, and error.
