About This Class

Do all the settings, controls and buttons on your camera have you taking pictures on automatic all the time? Learn to express yourself creatively through your camera! This course explains how cameras work and how to use yours with lots of visuals and a minimum of jargon. Designed for beginners, you can learn how to feel comfortable moving from fully automatic into your ideal creative zone!

Very entertaining course with some good illustrations and image examples. It is short and to the point which is just what a lot of beginning photographers are looking for. It doesn’t require a lot of commitment so I would recommend giving it some viewing time. If you are just beginning, you will learn something new.
Thanks for the class! I'm going to experiment with my camera and make some pics for the class project.
