Introduction to Photography

  • SLY Photography 1408 11th Ave Suite 3a Altoona, Pa 16601 (map)

Love taking photos with your DSLR camera, but can't stop using the automatic settings? Come learn how to master your camera so that you can take photos that will have your friends asking, 'who took your pictures?'

Inspired by my college curriculum, I have created a one-of-a-kind course that over 6 weeks will cover:

-How your camera works

-Photography fundamentals (shutter, aperture, iso)

-Camera Raw



Students will receive a workbook covering all lessons. Each week we will have different shooting assignments that we will do together in class, some of which may involve a small field trip. Additionally, students will have a small "homework" assignment that will be reviewed the following week. Our last class will be a little show and critique of everyone's favorite photos that they captured throughout the course.

This will be an intensive, comprehensive course that has been created to help you significantly grow as a photographer. These classes will be kept small with a very limited number of seats so that I may provide individual attention.

Classes will be held Saturday Mornings at 11am on February 23rd, March 2nd, March 9th, March 16th, March 23rd, and March 30th.

In the event of inclement weather classes will be rescheduled.

Course requirements:

DSLR camera, lenses, camera manual, backup batteries, a computer to upload photos, and internet access.

Optional Equipment:

Adobe Lightroom (there is a 30-day free trial available), a tripod, printer, light meter, and a color calibrator for your computer monitor.

Total Cost: $180
