Introduction to Photography

You can take this course with any cameras, phones, mirrorless, point and shoots, DSLR. With or without Manual Mode. You'll earn the tons of tricks that you can do with the equipment that you already have, without complexity and staying in Auto mode if you prefer! Come grab and get a grasp of the fundamentals of photography!

You'll learn the tricks to enhance your sharpness, focus, create motion blur shots, freeze motion, use the on-camera flash, take photos at night, and gain basic control over your exposure, as well as the main camera settings and options.

We'll explore settings such as exposure compensation and various presets that can turn a regular image into a special one. Our knowledgeable instructors will guide you through all the main options that your camera has, and how and when to apply each of them based on the effect and scene that you are looking to portray.

Additionally, this class will thoroughly introduce to all other digital photography related topics that you will need to know when planning to buy your next camera. These subjects include, megapixels, lenses, noise, white balance, ISO, SD cards and much more. Never miss that shot again!

We'll head outdoors around Union Square or the Highline, as much as possible so you gain for real life shooting practice of your newly learned skills. Class structures are mixed with Photo Critiquing HW, Verbal Instruction and Hands-on Exercises. A mixture to cater to all learning types. Additionally, you'll develop your own photo project and will have the option to showcase at the end of the course (optional).

Requirements: Any cameras. (Phone, Mirrorless, Point and Shoot or DSLR). Note you may choose to attend without a camera. By ANY we mean any kind, type or model. For the first class, please try to bring your manual for reference.

** Students who completed The Digital Camera course in the past, don't need to take this course.

Course Structure Suggestion: This course covers all of the basics and we therefore highly recommend that it is taken before any other course (except for the Manual Mode course). And pairing it with the Creative Photography course and Travel Photography.

Notes on film cameras: Please note that while most content of this course is applicable to digital cameras, you are welcome to attend as long as your film camera has an automatic shooting mode. Should the assigned instructor become suddenly unavailable, we'll allocate a substitute.
