This class is for those of you that have bought digital cameras, but have no idea what to do now! You will learn to take full control of your camera by taking it off of Automatic and graduating immediately to Manual. You will learn how to use natural light to your advantage and even get creative. With this class and dedication to learning, you will be a master of your camera within 4 weeks.

In this class we will go over the basics of digital photography. I will show you how to access and strategically use the main functions of your camera including techniques to improve the quality of your photography with natural lighting and ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed Settings. 
All participants must attend class with a digital camera that can be placed in Manual Mode in order to learn. 

Topics taught in class: 


  • ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, White Balance 

  • Raw vs Jpeg 

  • Natural Lighting 

  • Composition 

  • Getting Creative 

  • and more… 

Some things that this class does NOT teach: 

  • Video 

  • Special features on your camera that are specific to your camera. 

  • Advanced settings 

  • Editing Software such as Lightroom and Photoshop 

  • Flash Photography 

Attendance is important. I do assign homework to make sure you are putting what you learned to use. I want you to get as much out of this class as possible. Your efforts are important. 
Class fees are non-refundable, but can be used as a credit towards photography services provided by Carol Lara Photography or a future group class if one is available.
