My South Bay Adult School Fall Classes


I now have my class schedule for the fall term. I’ll be teachinbg both the basic digital camera class and the advanced class for those of you who have a digital SLR camera. Or an advanced compact camera, which allows you to set the aperture and shutter speed manually will also work well. Remember, the word “advanced”  refers to your camera, not you. I will also be teaching the Digital Photo Editing Using Photoshop Elements class.

My web site has been updated to show the SBAS fall term. Those of you who are on my email distribution list should have gotten your email announcement by the time you read this.

My class schedule at the Griffith Adult Center in Torrance has not been finalized yet. I should have that information for you in a coulple of weeks or so.

I’m leaving Saturday for a week long road trip to Oregon. I expect to take a ton of pictures, some of which no doubt will end up being the “befores” in my photo editing class. Below are the times and descriptions for the classes I’ll be teaching at SBAS in the fall cpied from my web site.

==========================

It’s now July and the weather is beginning to warm up. The fall term begins Monday, September 14th. I hope you are enjoying your summer and are taking a lot of pictures.

 All of my classes include an extensive set of exercise notes. The notes are provided online on a restricted web page accessed from my blog. You will be given the password the first day of class.  The handouts are provided in PDF format which is compatible with virtually all computers. I also use the restricted web page to communicate with my students between class sessions.

Registration should begin via the South Bay Adult School web site soon.

 There are two levels of camera classes. One will be for those just starting out and/or using a compact digital camera that does not allow for manually selecting the shutter speed and lens aperture (F-Stop).

 The more advanced camera course will be geared towards students using a digital SLR or a more sophisticated compact digital camera, which does allow these manual settings.

 We will be using Photoshop Elements 6.0 in all of our classes. For those of you who are using older versions of Elements or the new Version 7, I will point out the differences during class, so you can use what you learn in class at home.

 I will be teaching both camera classes during the fall term, and the photo editing class. Remember, these camera classes fill up quickly since they are restricted to 12 students, so register early. Descriptions of other classes I will be teaching in future terms are also shown below.

 Getting to Know Your Point and Shoot Digital Camera

Do you find the manual that came with your new digital camera confusing?  Or maybe some of the pictures you have taken using its programmed or automatic mode did not turn out like you had hoped. Are you struggling a bit to understand or set all of those options you are presented with, let alone knowing how and when to use them? If so, then this may just be the class to help you get more from your digital camera. This is a hands-on course – your hands on your camera. Class size is purposely being kept small to maximize the benefit to you. For those of you who have DSLR cameras, you will probably find the advanced class better suited for your needs, especially if you have previously owned a simpler compact digital camera.

 Please note, there is an information sheet that lists what you should bring with you to class, and a couple of things you need to do prior to the first class meeting. You will be provided this information when you register in person. It is also available when you register online. Click here to view it now.

 Wednesdays 9:00-11:00 am, beginning Sept.16th (5 Meetings)

 Getting to Know Your Advanced Digital Camera

This class is designed for those people who have a digital SLR or a more advanced compact digital camera that allows the shutter speed and lens aperture to be selected manually. The exercises we do will focus on those features that are available on these more advanced cameras. We will begin using the automatic and programmed modes, but will then move on to the manual modes for more creative control of the image. This is a hands-on course – your hands on your camera. Class size is purposely being kept small to maximize the benefit to you. If you are brand new to digital photography, you may want to take the beginning camera class described above first.

Until next time,
