Mastering Digital Photography in Three Weekends: A Fun & Easy Introduction to Digital Photography

Discover your “inner photographer.”  In just three weekends, you will be transformed from a camera owner to a photographer! This three-weekend course was designed for anyone who is interested in taking their photography to the next level.  Absolute beginners are welcome! A digital handout is available for all of the classroom materials, so taking notes is not necessary.  Participants are given an opportunity to practice their newly acquired skills in numerous guided photo shoots throughout Callaway Gardens.

At the conclusion of the course, the participant will have a thorough understanding of:

  1. How to compose your photos for greatest impact (Can you say WOW?)
  2. The fundamentals of photography (aperture, shutter speed, ISO, depth of field, etc)
  3. How your camera works (and what to do when it doesn’t)
  4. The function and use of your camera’s many dials, buttons and features
  5. How to make informed lens purchases; how to get your digital images uploaded to your computer
  6. How to back up your digital image library
  7. How to post-process your images in the digital darkroom
  8. How to prepare your digital images for print or publishing on the internet
