For beginners who want to learn more than just buttons and knobs.
Improve your pictures by learning more about the tools of photography: aperture, shutter speed, depth-of-field, lenses, composition and light. Students learn via in-class demonstrations, handouts, assignments, supportive critiques and the exploration of the art of photography. Use a digital SLR or digital point-and-shoot camera (in which the shutter speed can be changed).

How do I know if I qualify?
