4 Week Program Fundamentals of Photography



Presented by: Christopher Kern



This is a 4-Week series. Dates are for September 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th from 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
*Classes cannot be purchased individually.

Students will understand, and become comfortable with, the foundational use of their camera by understanding exposure through metering and the relationship between ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. Then, begin to implement foundational design elements through composition, and compression through different lens focal lengths. Focusing on a hands-on approach to learning, you will produce images each week in relationship to the discussion topics and be reviewed for critique.


Key Takeaways:

  • Understanding how exposure is affected by ISO, aperture, shutter speed. 

  • Utilize metering to create the proper exposure for artistic or technical intent. 

  • Utilize aperture to effectively control depth of field. 

  • Utilize shutter speed to control stop-action, movement or motion. 

  • Understand lens compression and the effect it has on a subject. 

  • Understand the relationship between metering and the digital histogram. 

  • Understand proper white balance and exposure.
