Photography Basics: Part Two ( Online )

$35

with Ronnie Zincone

***DATE CHANGE*** THIS CLASS WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 4/4 AND WILL NOT BE HELD ON 4/18

This follow-up course in photography is designed to teach and educate you on the very basics of 35mm photography with an emphasis on “digital photography” since we live in the digital age. In this Part 2 course, I will introduce you to the “art side” of photography called “composition” and then introduce you to the principles of “exposure” and “light”.  It is my hope that this course will get you started in photography, learn more about the art and science of “writing with light” and help eliminate any confusion or frustration you may have.  This course was created to teach you only what you need to know, the basics of photography -- but basics that are important!  I hope that this course will be a stepping-stone for you to move forward in this visual art.
