Photo I: Bootcamp



Photo I Bootcamp is a comprehensive class about the fundamentals of photography.

You will learn about correct exposure, what makes the “right exposure” and why. You’ll discover the meaning of shutter speeds and f-stops and how to stop motion or let a “subject’s motion” blur in just the right way. You will also learn about depth of field: how much of the picture you should have in focus and how to use “out of focus” in just the right way.

During the Photo I Bootcamp you will also learn about composition for photography and ways to approach the “critique” of photographs – your own and the work of others.

The Photo I Bootcamp lays the proper foundation for the more technical Digital Photo II and Photo III classes.

If you are able to, please attend one of the Intro to Photography Classes (available In-Studio & Online) prior to beginning your Photo I Bootcamp or Photo I class.  Doing so will introduce you to the basics of camera operation and a number of shooting basics, including f-stops and shutter speed.  You’ll also have a chance to meet our instructors and ask questions about your camera.
