Camera Craft 1

This course runs at the same time, every week over 5 weeks

Designed to help you get the most out of your DSLR or Compact-System camera, Camera Craft 1 will help develop your creativity while teaching you how to use your camera in full manual mode.  

Learn about the fundamental creative principles of photography and how these principles relate to your camera's functions in a series of informative lectures. Each week, you'll be given a practical assignment, the results of which will be reviewed in the following class. 
You'll also be encouraged to discuss historical and contemporary images with your classmates, which will help develop your understanding of exposure, subject and composition.
This course is for those wishing to build a solid foundation in photography or who plan to continue developing their photographic skills at ACP. Participants should expect to bring their assignments as 4x6 prints each week.
