Digital Photography 101: Get More from your Camera (non-member)
Get Out of Auto Mode!
From practical advice to hands-on photography, award-winning photographer Shirley
Whitenack will teach this photography workshop that will empower you to take control of your
camera and unleash your creativity. You will learn basic camera mechanics, selection of a file
type, shooting modes, and electronic flash. In addition, you will learn the fundamentals of
exposure, exposure compensation, as well as the relationship of shutter speed, f-stop, and ISO
setting. Focus, point of focus, and focus lock will be explained. Photographs, demonstrations,
and hands-on learning will reinforce the classroom instruction. Each participant will receive
photography handouts to keep for future reference.
What to bring? Camera(s), battery charger, instruction manual, digital media, tripod (not
required), laptop (not required), a few good and “not so good” photos you have taken, a brown
bag lunch, and your questions.
Shirley has been photographing for over 50 years and has earned the Fellow of
Photography degree from VA Professional Photographers Association. She is also a lifetime
member of Professional Photographers of America.
Expect to leave this class with the confidence to take control of your camera to create
more dynamic photographs.
Bring a lunch!
