Use your Camera - Stop Letting it Use You!
Requirements: Student must bring digital or film camera which has manual mode or at least access to aperture and shutter speed controls (you may bring a camera which does not meet these requirements - but it will not be as beneficial for learning).

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Sections Presented in the workshop are:
Assignments will be given between classes.
The Photo 101 HALF WORKSHOP (NEW):Recommended for all students who are either self starters or are very familiar with course material and need a refresher or simply want the basics and need to hit the ground running. This is the same as the Photo 101 workshop but without the extra assignment work - but you will be able to sit in on classes with the students in the comprehensive workshop (like a class audit) and you will take part in the same exercises and have access to the same equipment - except participants will attend only the first half of the course. If space and circumstances permit, students will be allowed to extend/expand to the full version of the workshop, though we can make no promises beforehand. If you know you will be limited by your schedule, the half workshop is the one to take.
Each of the eight sections are two hours in length and sessions occur twice weekly (that means four weeks - tuesdays and thursdays from 7-10 PM). Space in this workshop will be limited to 12 (twelve) participants. Each participant will be given attention according to their needs. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout the session and individual help is available during the workshops .
The workshop fee is $295 for the entire set and $255 for members (and a further $20 off if purchased online). Groups also welcome by prior arrangement. Fee includes handouts summarizing topics included in each section of the workshop. Individual instruction is also available upon inquiry. All workshops must be paid for (or else a deposit left) before 72 hours (three days) from the start of a workshop or else a penalty fee of $50 will apply. Payment may be made online in advance (see below) at a discounted rate.
