This 14-hour class (over three 2-hr class sessions and two 4-hr field sessions) explores the practical application of Photography 101 foundations. We alternate between classroom and field, with the first session an overview of camera operation and exposure in the classroom. The next session is in the field making photographs. We return to the classroom in the third session to review the photographs made, analyze the results and arrive at solutions. The last two sessions are another field trip followed by another classroom review. Photography 101 is not a prerequisite to enroll in this class, but to get the most out of this class you should have a basic understanding of camera operation (aperture, shutter speed, ISO) and principles of exposure.
