Learn basic, foundational knowledge with an introduction to camera functions, including exposure, Raw Mode, White Balance, and controlling depth of field. Get an intro to Adobe Bridge & Photoshop. Using student images taken previously, Mike will give a live processing demo and show how to process a raw file and finish it for printing, sharing, etc. Cover intermediate functions, including stitching and HDR processing, understanding the most common file types and prepping images for printing. Critiques and an open discussion will conclude the session, along with information about photo opportunities and offerings happening in the area to continue their photography journey. Expect weekly homework assignments; the subject matter is open and inclusive, practicing the content covered in each class, with student images used in subsequent sessions.
