What you'll learn in this on location photography class:

This class is designed for those who have taken any of the Photography Basics classes and want the opportunity to work in the field to reinforce the material covered in the classroom. We’ve encouraged you to leave the Auto settings behind and to shoot in the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual modes so now it’s time for some hands-on.

We’ll review the exposure settings and then photograph around our location and practice using various settings to achieve the look you want in the image.

We'll be working with you to reinforce:

  • Camera Controls
  • ISO Settings
  • Controlling motion with Shutter Speeds
  • Depth of Field and setting the aperture for the 'look' you want
  • Focus settings and controling the focus area
  • Playback tools such as the histogram to eveluate your exposures
  • White Balance
  • Composition - Framing an interesting photograph

Our location at the US Botanical Gardens Conservatory gives us plenty of photo opportunities to practice exposure settings and creative captures. Join us and come away with stronger skills for setting exposure and capturing exciting images that you’re proud to show off.

Any camera with the Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual modes is appropriate. Bring your camera and any or all of your lenses. We’ll work with what you have in your bag. 

Other items to have on hand; an extra battery and memory card, your camera manual and a circular polarizer if you have one. A tripod is not needed for this class.

Please note: It is assumed you have already taken a Basics class or are somewhat familiar with the manual exposure modes. We will not be able to introduce you to this material at this class.
