Did you recently get a new camera for the holidays? Do you have a camera sitting on a shelf because you haven’t figured it how to use it? Maybe you've got a camera but you want to get more use out of it?
If you’d like to learn more about your camera and how to best utilize it to get great photographs, the Doña Ana Photography Club’s Photography Bootcamp Workshop is for you!
This 5-part series is aimed at anyone new to photography, anyone wanting to learn how to better use his or her camera, or anyone with questions about photography and how to take better photographs.
The Bootcamp will start with “Learning about your Camera” and include courses covering taking better photographs, getting your camera off automatic mode, and editing.
Part 1 - Learning About Your Camera The first part of the course will revolve around the basics of the camera, identifying general camera information, dials, and buttons. Then the course will discuss basic techniques to help you get comfortable with the camera, holding it, and using it in the field; some basic photography tips will also be discussed.
For the second part of the course, attendees will break into small groups and work with members from the Doña Ana Photography Club. Here they will be able to ask specific questions about their cameras and get hands on help. After some hands-on time, groups will go out and get some practice “in the field.” They will have the plenty of opportunities around Cruces Creatives, and the farmer’s market within walking distance, to practice things they learned and be able to ask questions while out taking pictures. Participants will then return and have a chance to review and discuss their photos and ask any final questions.
Space is limited; if you have any questions contact Rob Peinert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
