Creating Better Photos

Course Description

We have "revamped" this popular non-technical course to be specific to digital cameras which has allowed us to shorten the course and lower the price! You will not have to take your camera out of the Programmed Automatic Mode, yet we will show you many techniques to improve your photographs. Students will learn through a series of both lecture and "hands on" practice sessions at each class. Our instructors explain and demonstrate methods that will help students improve their portraits, candid family photos, family event photos, holiday photos and more. This course is great for anyone who does not want to learn the technical aspects of photography and will help students using virtually any camera from a point and shoot to a high end DSLR. Many students have found this course helpful with the cell phone camera too!
