We'll get you up and running quickly, showing you what's up with all the buttons and dials, the different modes available, and how to read your light meter. You'll learn about basic exposure control, and just become more familiar with your camera in general.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Using live video demonstrations, guided feedback to exercises, screen-sharing for slides and illustrations, and submitted assignments, we’ll be able to translate the great majority of the content from this class to the online format, and develop exciting new content for the medium as well. We look forward to the challenge, and we hope you do too!
