      Focus on Focus - Intro to Photography Series

      What You'll Learn

      Focus on Focus will help you learn the basics of using a digital camera at home, at work, or while you travel. With an emphasis on the all important need to get the subject sharply focused. The camera has an automatic focus setting of course but you’ll learn to adjust and tweak how that control functions for different types of images. Modern DSLR/Mirrorless camera focus settings can be really confusing, even for pros. This class will clarify the whole subject.

      This hands-on class with your camera will walk you through all of the important settings. And learn the ones that are so specific they can usually be ignored. Learn to focus on moving subjects. Learn to focus and then recompose without losing the sharpness you need. When is it easier to use a manual focusing technique? Understand the Depth of Field concept and how it dovetails with the focusing. Should you use the shutter button for focus? Maybe not! Learn which settings you want to change and which ones to leave at the defaults.

      Equipment for Class

      You will need a camera with auto and manual focus settings. Contact the instructor if you are not sure your camera is appropriate.

      Who Should Take This

      Photographers who are just starting out and hobbyists/amateurs who want to get better will benefit from this class. Many take this soon after or just before getting a new camera.
