What you'll learn in this beginner photography class:

By the end of this class, you will learn to control your camera in Manual Mode. You will gain a clear understanding of:
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed
  • ISO
  • Exposure
  • Focus Control
  • White Balance
  • Rule of Thirds
  • Basic use of the built in flash
This beginner photography class was designed to be:
  • Fun: We have prepared both indoor and outdoor exercises  to make sure you are constantly practicing what you learn.
  • Effective:  You won't believe how much you will learn in this 9 student class. Your satisfaction is guaranteed after attending all 6 classes. See what others think on our Yelp reviews.
  • Flexible: We know you are busy so we offer make-up class options in case you need to miss a class.
This course offers students a presentation of their work with a Photography Exhibition at PhotoUno. Exhibitions are optional and are not part of the course.

Q&A


Q: I am semi-comfortable with my DSLR and have been shooting for awhile, but I still shoot in P, not Manual. Is this the right class for me?

A: Yes, this will definitely be a great learning experience for you. P mode is a semi-automatic mode, so the photographer has limited control and the camera is still making many decisions. In this class, you will learn to take full control in manual mode. You will learn how to set the ISO, aperture and shutter to get the look you want. 

Q: I see if I book Digital Photography I - Taking Control of Your Camera through PhotoUno directly, I'll receive free access to the beginner photography course online. Do I receive the same access if I book through CourseHorse?
A: 
Yes, CourseHorse students are offered the same perks at PhotoUno as their students are offered directly.

Q: Are Materials provided and included in the cost of the class?

A: We do provide handouts, but we do not provide the cameras.

Materials you will need to bring to class:
  • DSLR camera, Mirrorless camera or Compact camera, which has Aperture (A/Av) Priority, Shutter (S/Tv) Priority and Manual Mode.
Q: Can I make up a class if I miss one?
A:  
Yes, we do provide make up class options. 

Q: Is a certificate of completion available to me after completing their class?
A: Yes

Q: Is a professional certificate available to me after completing their class?
A: No

Although PhotoUno has no obligation to provide make-up classes for students who can’t attend a class of the course they have signed up for, we will do our best to find a solution by:

1. Finding possible sections of the class for the student to attend in order to follow the sequence of the course. This option is free. This can be done up to two times for every course.

2. If we are unable to find a convenient date, we will offer the option of a private make up class that will be charged at a rate of $35 an hour.

PhotoUno is not obligated to grant student requests to switch courses.

Good introduction to some essential photo techniques. Learned a lot of practical concepts. The exercises became a bit repetitive though. Wish there was more variety / practicing new skills towards the end.
