In this engaging, hands-on digital camera class, we explain the qualities of excellent photographs and the most important functions on your DSLR camera that a professional photographer uses to achieve these qualities.

This camera class helps you learn how to use your camera’s light meter for creative exposure control, white balance for accurate color, in-depth Auto Focus features for tack-sharp photos, and on-camera flash technique for professional quality fill-lighting.

We demystify your camera for three hours in the morning, take a lunch break and then come back for three more hours in the afternoon. The day offers a thoughtfully paced, six hours of instruction, demos, exercises and answering questions along the way. In this small class, no student is left behind!

You’ll learn how to do the following on your camera:

•    The “Way to Shoot” digital photographs
•    Understand camera operation and interface
•    The best camera menu settings for different subjects
•    How to control exposure in Manual mode
•    The fundamentals to master accurate focus, every time.

PLUS we’ll show you how to:

•    Observe the quality of light
•    Control white balance for accurate color
•    Set your flash power settings for great results in soft indoor light to strong outdoor sun
•    Compose a photograph

Please note this workshop teaches the DSLR and the better DM (mirrorless) camera. You need a camera with interchangeable lenses to participate in a class. Please read the sidebar » “What is a DSLR/M?” to determine if you have the right camera for this class.

What is a DSLR and Mirrorless Note:

Digital Single Lens Reflex (or Mirrorless). I teach how to use all real cameras in manual mode. Know manual mode and your camera opens up like a lotus flower. Perhaps less flowery, and more to the point, your other creative modes A, S, and P fall neatly into place.

If your lens is interchangeable, you have a DSLR. Or a mirrorless camera.The Mirrorless camera is a lot of camera packed into a tiny body. Here you have an electronic viewfinder. These smaller, lighter mirrorless cameras sport very dense interfaces, and they are all very different from one another. Don’t sweat the funny icons and symbols, I take care of that. I promise. ~TEU

“The DSLR Jumpstart class was perfectly utilized. Tom was very patient and even though my camera was a Sony Nex 5n, mirrorless, he was prepared specifically for me with a reference sheet and explanations. I now understand how to use my camera and take better pictures for my food blog. I highly recommend this class.”
