A complete introduction to camera operation, this workshop combines classroom instruction with an opportunity for hands-on application and feedback. Participants will enjoy a stroll down historic Beach Street, photographing the architecture, unique storefronts, local color and other sights. 

This super condensed "crash course" covers topics like: camera functions and capabilities, shooting techniques, and an introduction to digital viewing and editing on the computer. Participants will learn about depth of field, aperture, ISO sensitivity, shutter speed settings, image quality and file formats, as well as the basic rules of composition.
