Introduction to Digital Photography Course

We are pleased with the level of interest we've seen in our recently announced digital photography course. We've been spending some time fleshing out the details, and we want to get that information out to you.

This class is designed for the the neophyte camera owner that wants to learn how to take good photos. If you have a DSLR that seems to be harder to get good pictures out of than your old point and shoot, this class is for you. If you know someone who struggles to use their camera, this class is for them. If you don't know why your pictures are blurry, this class is for you. If you just want to learn how to make photographs that you can proudly print and display on your wall, this class is for you.

Each class will be 90 minutes of instruction on a given set of topics. You will learn new skills and have assignments to practice what you have learned to help you develop and retain these skills. There will be Q&A time during class to ensure that everyone is keeping up. Class size will be limited to 10 students to ensure there is sufficient personal attention for all.

Here's the syllabus:

Class 1: The Camera
Class 2: Understanding Exposure
Class 3: Elements of Good Photographs
Class 4: Post-Processing 1
Class 5: Post-Processing 2
Class 6: Photo Critique and Miscellaneous Topics

The class instructor will be international award winning photographer, Mark Levesque. Mark holds both the Master Photographer and Photographic Craftsman degrees from the Professional Photographers of America, is a Certified Professional Photographer, and has written many articles for Professional Photographer Magazine.

Tentative start date for the class is Tuesday, January 15th at 6pm.
