San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 23, 2011
Digital cameras have simplified the process of making pictures, but ultimately the camera’s computer guesses what kind of photo is being made. How many people understand all of their camera settings? Or know why their photos don’t meet expectations? Learning to operate a camera’s bells and whistles will ensure that budding photographers achieve the look they want to create.
“I realized a lot of photography enthusiasts have done great research and read reviews, then taken the plunge and purchased their dream camera. But when it finally arrives, they take it out of the box, turn it on, and often realize they have no idea how to use it. I wanted to provide a hands-on learning environment for those people, to help them maximize their skills and get the most out of their cameras,” Cowley explained. “A good foundation in photography is a must. Getting down the basics will lead to huge improvements in personal photography,” adds Cowley.
The photography workshops are taught in series of simple one-evening lessons. The first evening is designed to provide a foundation for new photographers and refresh techniques for the more experienced. Whether working with a high-end SLR digital camera or an inexpensive point-and-shoot, students will learn photography fundamentals. All skill levels are welcome.
