Introduction to Digital Photography

Improve your photography. Learn to control your camera.


The goal of this class is to help you "create photographs" rather than "shooting snapshots". We will explore various ways you can create images that convey emotion and that tell a story, in any genre of photography. 

We will also dig into the technical aspects that are required in order to achieve your creative vision. We cover things like aperture, shutter speed, autofocus modes and much more.


By the end of the course, you should have a good understanding of how to operate your DSLR or Mirrorless camera in Manual mode.

1 - Develop Creative Vision


The class consists of 6 evenings together in the virtual classroom on the easy-to-use Zoom platform.

These live seminars are typically about 2 hours each. Every night, we will explore a different topic. No matter what brand of camera you work with, these lessons will help you understand your instrument and its settings.

The course has a laid back, informal feel. Participants are encouraged to ask their questions throughout the presentation, and we try to make it as interactive as possible.

Participants will also receive an invitation to join a private Facebook group for the class in which bonus course materials and photo critiques will be offered in between live Zoom sessions. We will use the group for discussion and communication between each live class.

I've taken a photography course before. Is this workshop for me?

Absolutely! This workshop is designed to benefit both complete beginners and photographers at the intermediate levels. No matter what, this class will help improve your photography.

What is the cancellation / refund policy?

Refunds can only be issued until April 25, 2020. 

What happens if I miss a class?

No problem! The classes will be recorded and you will have access to the replay. 

What is NOT covered in this class?

We won't be covering studio-lighting, as most beginners don't have a photography studio at home. Also, we will not be covering Lightroom/Photoshop or any other editing tool. The goal with this class is to get you as comfortable with the camera as possible, so that when comes time to edit your photo, you will have a better file to work with.

What equipment is required?

  • A DSLR or mirrorless camera (These are cameras that allow you to interchange lenses. You may still benefit from the course if your camera does not have that capability, but some of the contents of the workshop will not apply to you.)

  • A Facebook account (for bonus course materials)
