In this class we are going to cover basic equipment in a way that will increase the number of choices that you as a photographer have to work with in composing an image.
Basic principles of composition that underlie successful photographs are
not rules to be followed slavishly. But understanding them will help you
to produce the images you visualize. It matters not if you are using
an old manual 35mm SLR (Single Lens Reflex), a Point and Shoot Automatic
or a Digital camera, learning some of these basic principles will help
you to improve your photographs. With the automatic cameras there
are often ways to program the settings used here, and with the simple,
feature challenged, cameras, there are often ways to fool it into
doing what you will learn here. READ YOUR MANUAL.
