Level: Beginners- ideal for people who just got a new camera!

What you will learn:

  • how to have manual control over your camera and not be "stuck" in auto mode all the time 
  • the technical and creative applications of using aperture and shutter speeds, ISO settings to make your pictures how you have always wanted them to look.  
  • how to use your light meter in the camera
  • how to read your histogram so that your technique in making photo art improves

In the morning session, there will be an emphasis on the balance of technical side of photography.  And in the afternoon we will focus on the creative side of photography.  With the use of beautiful slideshows Trina will teach you about visual language; the elements and principles of design.  Highlights of the workshop will include feedback session on your photos, learning how to adjust your photos on the computer to improve them.

To provide a personal “hands-on” environment, Trina has been teaching this workshop for 18 years out of her studio.  The class size is strictly limited to 12 people to maintain a personal atmosphere.

"Great one day course which got me past the digital camera phobia.  Trina conveys a real sense of enthusiasm about her art."

"I really enjoyed this course.  Even as someone with some experience using my camera, you helped explain concepts and technical elements in a simple,easy to understand way.  You've motivated me to get out and use my camera more often!"
