Learn beginning to intermediate photography in 9 classes. This class will cover the technical and artistic aspects of photography. We will be focusing on DSLR cameras and will tell you what gear you need, how to compose and how to gauge light.
Some of the subjects covered will include focus and exposure, composition, post-processing and genres like landscape, wildlife, nightscapes and more. You will learn a lot whether you are starting out or have been using your camera for a while.
With two week-night classes we will give you some fun challenges for the week end. Your photographs will be critiqued each week and in the last week, we will have a review session wherein we will pick and print the best photographs from this program for the 2021 calendar of Asha Silicon Valley.
We suggest you have a DSLR or a mirrorless camera for this class. If you don’t have one, you can wait till the classes start for some ideas on what makes sense to start with. We also strongly recommend you get a subscription to Adobe Photography bundle. (It’s $10 a month)
