Basic Photography I: The Fundamentals

Six-week workshop at The Julia Dean Photo Workshops
Class Location: 801 Ocean Front Walk, Studio 8, Venice, CA 90291
October 3 – November 7, Saturdays 10am – 1pm

In this six-week workshop students will learn all the gadgets on the camera, how to use them, and how to control the photograph’s final look. Discussions include composition and light, how to get the background in or out of focus, how to stop or blur motion, why to use one ISO over another, and how to use the camera’s light meter to provide the best exposure. Other topics covered include using the right lens for a specific effect and alternative approaches to photography. Further discussion will center on the similarities and differences between film and digital cameras. The basics that deal specifically with digital cameras will also be explored, such as how to adjust the camera’s white balance, how to view and delete images, and how to transfer the image from the camera to a computer. The goal is to provide each participant all the technical information needed to operate his or her film or digital camera properly. Students will work in both black-and-white and color while learning how to “see” in the chosen medium. Weekly assignments will be given followed by critiques during the next class session.
