Get comfortable with how your camera works and get the best photographs possible. This course will help you understand ISO, shutter speeds, f-stops, depth-of-field, exposure, and white balance. You will explore the use of different lenses, good composition and how dramatic lighting can make your photos more exciting. You will be introduced to the concepts of photographing people along with objects. Classroom instruction and hands-on practice through assignments will help you learn to get the most from your photographs. Finally, you will touch on how to best print your digital photos. You must have a 35mm SLR digital camera with manual capability (interchangeable lens mirrorless cameras are accepted). Please, no point-and-shoot, film or cell phone cameras.


I really enjoyed working with Jim, he was open about many techniques, and getting info about being in the profession was very interesting and eye-opening. He made us all feel comfortable and excited about us learning and moving forward. Barbara Linderman

I learned a lot in the photography class. He taught by example and we had a lot of hands-on experience in class. He was able to talk to the various levels of experience each student had in class and to the variety of camera models we each had. Sue Lech
