Digital Photography – Learn, Improve, Create!
Mountaineer Photo Excursions is working with West Virginia University at Parkersburg (WVU-P) to provide an additional three-evening photography class across three weeks in November 2017.
The course will consist of three classes, covering different information on subsequent classes. We will discuss basic camera controls, and how to get the most from the camera you have. Please bring your cameras, along with additional lenses you may have. Also, bring your camera owner’s manual. Students that know the controls on their cameras will learn how to use their knowledge to improve their photography results.
We will discuss different types of cameras and photography equipment, and which choices may work best for different people and subjects. Students will have the opportunity to bring in their photos for group critiques.
You will learn simple ways to improve your photos, along with the rules of composition. You will learn when you want a wide-angle lens, when to use a telephoto lens, and when to stick with what you have. We will also discuss some limited post-processing techniques, such as cropping, black & white conversion, and more.
