Photo Basics (For Non-Professional Photographers): January 24th, 2015

The next Photo Basics class is planned for January 24, 2015.  This class is geared to NON-professional photographers!  This class is for the average person looking to take better images, understand their camera better, and who just wants to understand what all the books mean with their nonsense abbreviations.  In the class, we will cover the basics of exposure, composition, camera functions and some basic photo editing using free software.  The class is $99, and limited to 12 people per class.  If you would like to reserve your spot in this class, or simply be added to the waiting list, contact the studio at 850.339.5799 or email Info@LongsPhotography.com

There is no basic knowledge, camera or software needed for the class.  I encourage all participants to bring their cameras and a notebook with them for notes.  We will begin by talking about how the camera captures and image and what goes into making the exposure.  We will cover what the buttons on the camera mean and how you can use them to get better images.  (While I am a Canon shooter, if you own a Nikon, Fuji, etc. I will still be able to help!)  We will then talk about how composition affects the final result and how to use creative compositions to elevate your images.  Finally, we will take a look at some free photo editing software, learn how to make basic adjustments and how to avoid many of the common editing mistakes.  Lastly we will have a brief question period for any material we did not cover earlier in the day or anything that was confusing or unclear.

The class will not make you a professional photographer and is not recommended for professional photographers.  This class is really focused at conquering the basics and getting the average person more confident in how their camera works.  We will not be addressing studio lighting, off camera flash, Photoshop editing techniques, etc.  In the future, if there is enough interest, we will offer more advanced and more specific classes.  If you have any questions about the material to be covered or whether the class is the right one for you, email Linda@LongsPhotography.com
