I have been wanting to take a refresher photography class. I think it’s always good to go back and relearn your camera, or just set some time aside to shoot more and grow as a photographer. I just signed up for a fabulous Big Picture basic photography class taught by the adorable Elisha Snow, and I want you to take the class with me!
Big Picture Classes has generously donated a class pass to one lucky reader! Woot! Woot! The class is called Mastering Manual Mode, and it’s an 8-week online workshop valued at $139. The class runs from 10/25/2012-12/19/2012.
Here’s the class description:
You’ve finally purchased that fancy digital SLR camera and have started shooting pictures
in auto mode. You’ve probably been amazed at the difference in quality, speed and clarity in
comparison to that old point-and-shoot, right? If you haven’t taken your DSLR camera out of
auto mode, then this class is for you! There’s so much you can do with your camera, so get ready
to be amazed!
In this 8-week class, you’ll learn how to reach your full potential in digital SLR photography
— exploring what you can do in program, aperture-priority, shutter-priority and other creative
modes. You’ll learn exactly what ISO, shutter speed and aperture mean individually and how
they work together to create that perfect photo. You’ll delve into white balance settings and focus
modes, and learn more about camera equipment, accessories and lenses. You’ll get a refresher
on some basic (but important!) composition tips and discover some fun and amazing photo
techniques that Elisha has amassed throughout her own learning adventures.
Elisha is such a great photographer, and has been sharing her love of photography for years. Her passion started a few years ago when she became an editor for Simple Scrapbooks Magazine, and traveled the country as a teacher for Creating Keepsakes University (CKU). Her enthusiasm grew as she taught hundreds of people that even a simple Polaroid camera is an amazing tool for creatively freezing a moment in time. And now, several cameras later, she’s ready to help instill a passion for photography in you!
