PHOTOGRAPHY CLASSES

Photography Classes
Ages 18+

Bob Splichal, a self-taught, advanced photographer and seasoned photography instructor will take you on a journey through the art form that he is passionate about. Through Bob’s personal experiences and travel, he shares his many photos to help simplify your learning about how to better understand and use your camera. Watch for additional classes to be added.

 

Photography Basics
This photography class is based on a single assumption… no matter how simple or complex your camera is, you shoot mostly in the green “auto” mode. This class will help you understand how the camera functions while using the “auto” mode and how you can take better pictures while using it! Please bring your camera and manual to the class.

The Art of Photography
Learn how to compose great photos in this novice photography class! Do you understand shutter speeds? Do you know how to create width, depth and height in a photo? These are only two of the many topics covered in this class. Bob will cover the “Exposure Triangle” in more depth, so that you will further understand the importance of how shutter speed, ISO and aperture are combined to create a great photo. Bring your camera and manual to the class.

Understanding the Program Modes – Part 1
Learn how to understand the advanced program modes of your camera and improve your photography skills! Learn to focus on one aspect of the exposure triangle at a time, as you progress through all of the program modes and help you master the manual mode. Class will include practice using each of the program modes.

Complimenting the Program Modes – Part 2
Enhance your photography skills by learning about the different functions of your camera that will compliment your photography! This class includes understanding and use of the seven flash modes, ISO, white balance settings, exposure compensation, drive modes, auto focus settings, metering modes and auto exposure Bracketing. If you are used to using the program modes you may want to skip Part 1 and jump right into this class.
