This class is for those with previous photography experience and is great for someone with a basic understanding of the manual settings of their camera. 

During these sessions, we will further explore the abilities of your DSLR camera. This will include the exposure controls of the camera, bracketing and bulb shooting. There will also be more of a focus on composition and lighting. We will also look at pinhole photography, studio lighting, editing in Adobe Photoshop, sorting and filing digital images and post production options for your photos.
